EVENT: Advancing Dysphagia Practice Conference

We are delighted to announce the finalised programme for our Advancing Dysphagia Practice Conference on Wednesday 19th July at Newcastle University.

The exciting programme includes a presentation from our keynote speaker Dr Joanne Fillingham, Clinical Director Allied Health Professions (AHPs) and Deputy Chief Allied Health Professions Officer.

Delegates will also have a fantastic opportunity to join a workshop with Dr Tim Rapley, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Health & Society, Newcastle University on 'Research: Translation and implementation'.

We also have a wide selection of presentations of clinical projects from across the country.

Places are now fully booked. If you have secured a place but are now unable to attend please let us know as soon as possible so we can give your place to somebody on the waiting list – there are lots of people who would still like to come if they could.

On the day we will be launching a more active learning Community of Practice, so keep watching this space for news announcements about how everyone will be able to get involved.

We are also very pleased to announce our sponsors for the day: RIG Healthcare, Nutricia, Kora Healthcare, Rosemont and Slo drinks. Looking forward to seeing you all there!

EVENT: Predicting and Promoting Motor Recovery after Stroke

Internationally renowned stroke expert Cathy Stinear will visit UCLan during July to deliver a public lecture.

The current Director of the Clinical Neuroscience Laboratory at The University of Auckland will discuss 'Predicting and Promoting Motor Recovery after Stroke'.

Her research specialisation is in stroke neuro-rehabilitation, and she is particularly well-known for developing the PREP algorithm for Predicting Recovery Potential of the hand and arm after stroke. She has recently developed similar for time to return to walking.

As an applied clinical neuroscientist, she is focused on translating neuroscience discoveries into clinical practice. Her current work is using neurophysiology and neuroimaging tools to accurately predict the potential for motor recovery after stroke for individual patients.

She is also testing a range of neuromodulation techniques for promoting neural plasticity and enhancing the effects of neuro-rehabilitation.

Her laboratory is located within Auckland City Hospital, which provides unique opportunities for conducting clinical research.
