Launch of the An Saol Project
AN SAOL DAY
Saturday, 18 June 2016 from 14:30 to 16:30 (IST)
The Distillery Building – 145-151, Church Street, 7 Dublin, Ireland
Join us for the launch of the An Saol Project – Connecting the Practice of Neurological Rehabilitation with Recent Research.
We will be joined by international experts on neurological rehabilitation and representatives of national and international institutions and organisations working with survivors of severe acquired brain injury (sABI), as well as by survivors of sABI and their families.
The An Saol Project will work with a small number of survivors of sABI and their families, initially over a period of 3 years, to demonstrate how intensive mental and physical activity, as demonstrated in recent research, can significantly improve social integration and quality of life, as well as an improvement in function. The project will be guided by a panel of international experts who will monitor and document progress. International collaborators will ensure that the project will be informed by current best international practice in neurological rehabilitation.
We have invited politicians so that they can hear first hand about the project and express their support.
Current list of speakers and participating organisations:
– Professor Andreas Bender, University of Munich and Therapiezentrum Burgau
– Lebenszentrum Königsborn, Germany
– Headway Ireland
– Families of survivors of sABI
This is a ticketed event and a limited number of tickets are available with a donation requested in support of the An Saol Project.
