Paediatric Master Class Lectures with Dr Anna Adlam and Professor Nathan Hughes

We are delighted that for this Master Class we have two exceptional highly acclaimed academics who are able to translate the research of brain injury into everyday reality.

This Master Class aims to use research outcomes to inform practitioners across all disciplines of childhood acquired brain injury consisting of two lectures, one in the morning and one in the afternoon, with excellent networking opportunities over lunch.

This format allows Certified CPD opportunities on specialist areas of childhood ABI that are often not covered in as much detail at other Conferences or Seminars.

Our Master Class Lectures are aimed at delegates who already have an understanding of childhood acquired brain injury.

For those who are new to this topic we would recommend joining our “Understanding Childhood Acquired Brain Injury” Workshop prior to booking a Master Class Lecture, or viewing our E-Learning Sessions. Details for these can be found on our website –

  • Lunch: A light buffet lunch is provided for all FULL DAY delegates
  • Afternoon Lecture: 13:30  –  Professor Nathan Hughes

Content: Understanding and responding to disabling experiences of young people after ABI. *

  • Consider the various experiences and processes by which young people with acquired brain injury are made vulnerable, discriminated against, and ultimately disabled.
  • Review experiences within the daily routines of family and schools, as well as the heightened risk of educational disengagement, school exclusion, and criminalisation.
  • Consider the various means by which we might counter such experiences and processes, including the roles of social networks, professionals and services, and policy and legal frameworks. In doing so, participants will be encouraged to think about their own contributions.
  • Lectures Finish: 16:00

(Please note there will be a 30 minute break during each of the Lectures)
