Hits: 1803

Dear colleague,
As earlier announced, we have planned an in-between meeting in November, 18-19, 2011 focusing on the multidisciplinary approach for assessment and management of cognitive disorders in people with MS.

The aims of this meeting are:

  1. to compose a list of cognitive 'red flags', that is, of demographic, disease related, clinical and imagery variables that, according to scientific research, significantly relate to MS-related cognitive deficits.
  2. to list cognition-related observations that typically can be made in each discipline. What are the observations of a therapist while doing his clinical work and how can these observations be related to MS-related cognitive deficits?
  3. to determine what should be the content of an optimal neuropsychological report. To which questions should a neuropsychological report provide answers? What kind of cognitive information do you need for your clinical work with patients?

The meeting will be a joint meeting of SIG Communication & Swallowing, SIG Integration & Participation,SIG Occupation and SIG Psychology & Neuropsychology, and takes place in Melsbroek (Belgium).

The meeting will be organized in one day joint-meeting on the theme and one day separate SIG meetings (with possibility for all involved SIG's to continue their long-term work). See attached file for the complete programme. All SIG members will be asked to prepare the meeting, so we can have an interactive forum during the meeting.
