Introduction to vocational rehabilitation interventions for people with neurological conditions

Two day face-to-face workshop hosted by the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery

From: Tue 21 May 2024

To: Wed 22 May 2024

We are excited to be running a two-day introductory workshop to explore the provision of vocational rehabilitation for people with neurological conditions.


Facilitated by Dr Emma Cameron, Highly Specialist Clinical Psychologist, and Joanne Hurford, Clinical Specialist Occupational Therapist, this workshop will provide taught presentations, practical workshops and interactive discussions that address the following areas:

· Review the evidence base to support practice, defining vocational rehabilitation, interventions and efficacy.

· Consider relevant legislation and government drivers to support work as a health outcome and understand how the Equality Act (2010) may help people with disabilities in the workplace.

· Use of case studies and application of the biopsychosocial model to assess and manage neurological conditions within the context of work.

· Consider ‘invisible’ and ‘subtle’ disabilities (cognitive, cognitive communication, mood disturbance and fatigue difficulties) and how this impacts on work.

· Gain practical tips on identifying, communicating and negotiating reasonable adjustments with employers.

This course is well suited to those supporting people with complex neurological conditions. Whilst we will not be specifically addressing long-Covid, many symptoms align with neurological conditions and there will therefore be some useful learning for supporting this population vocationally.
