Maximising recovery after stroke – free online conference on 20 January 2024

The Brain Injury Team at Bolt Burdon Kemp is proudly working with Action for Recovery from Neurological Injury to hold a free online conference on stroke recovery next month. Leading stroke rehabilitation experts will give insights from their respective specialisms on how to maximise recovery after stroke on 20 January 2024.

Action for Recovery from Neurological Injury (ARNI)

ARNI is a charity that helps stroke survivors continue their functional recovery after they’ve been discharged into the community. For many stroke survivors this is a vulnerable time because NHS community-based stroke rehabilitation services can be limited.

ARNI was founded by Dr Tom Balchin, who in 1997 suffered a stroke. In the 20-plus years since, he has drawn on his experience of beating stroke and developed an exercise programme for stroke survivors to regain the ability to perform everyday tasks.

Tom’s emphasis is on functional recovery. He dispels outdated methods and focuses on what works through his ARNI programme, which is backed by clinical studies and endorsed by senior doctors.

Through his tireless work in stroke rehabilitation, Tom has built up close relationships with the UK’s leading stroke rehabilitation experts. It is with Tom’s help we have the privilege of bringing together two eminent stroke experts in a conference to share their insights on maximising recovery after stroke.

Optimising recovery after stroke

As brain injury lawyers we are often there when a client makes the transition from hospital-based to community-based rehabilitation. This is a difficult time and frequently clients tell us they feel cast adrift and left to fend for themselves at the time they need help the most. That’s why we support ARNI, which plugs a vital gap in the needs of stroke survivors. We are working with ARNI to hold this conference to give stroke survivors, and the people who support them, the knowledge to maximise their recovery.

Conference Saturday 20 January 2024 10.30am to 1.30pm

Hokman Wong (specialist brain injury solicitor) and Dr Tom Balchin will be co-chairing a conference with two eminent stroke experts (see below), who will share their knowledge on maximising recovery from stroke.

Professor Nick Ward (Professor of Clinical Neurology & Neurorehabilitation, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology) will speak about stimulating motor recovery after stroke.

Professor Anand Pandyan (Executive Dean, Health & Social Sciences, Bournemouth University) will speak about using technology to assist with recovery after stroke.

There will be a question and answer session at the end where you will be able to put queries to the experts.
