Seminar to look at clinical outcomes of Calvert Reconnections
The groundbreaking approach of a specialist brain injury rehabilitation centre which concentrates on outdoor-based therapy is to be the topic of a seminar held by Sintons.
Calvert Reconnections was opened last year as the first of its kind ABI rehab centre in the country, providing a residential opportunity for survivors to take part of a host of outdoor therapeutic activities to boost their recovery.
The centre, near Keswick in the Lake District, has been hailed for its significant contribution to brain injury rehabilitation, and has shown life-changing evidence based outcomes including 100 per cent of participants improving their ability to carry out everyday activities and needing less support after discharge.
To discuss its approach and support for ABI survivors, head of service Claire Appleton and senior OT Elaine Roberts will present at Sintons’ upcoming serious injury seminar.
The event, the fifth in a series of seminars aimed at serious injury professionals, will be held on Thursday, November 29 at Sintons’ headquarters in Newcastle.
Andrew McGowan, head of Neurotrauma at Sintons, said: “In the year since it opened, Calvert Reconnections has become known for its unique approach to brain injury rehabilitation and the clinical outcomes it has already achieved for survivors.
“Its outdoor-based therapy approach brings something wholly new to the therapies available to survivors, and broadens options during a time when access to rehabilitation is under great pressure.
“The opening of Calvert Reconnections has been hugely successful, and I have enjoyed working with Claire and her team in getting to know more about the life-changing service they provide. We hope others will enjoy learning more about this at our seminar.”
The event will be on November 29 at The Cube, Barrack Road, Newcastle, NE4 6DB. It will begin at 6pm and last around an hour. Places are allocated on a first come, first served basis and can be booked via sintons.co.uk/events or by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org or 0191 226 7907.
