Meeting to focus on brain injuries; BREAKING HEALTH newsbulletin.

LEADING brain injury experts from across the UK will meet in Swansea this month for the second South Wales neuro-rehabilitation conference.

The event, at the Liberty Stadium on May 18, will discuss the latest neuro-rehabilitation advances and challenges facing brain injury survivors.

One of the UK's brain injury experts, Professor Rodger Wood, who will speak at the conference, said: "The challenges facing individuals and their families affected by brain injury can be catastrophic and each case is distinctly different.

"Therefore it is crucial that events such as this take place in order for professionals to be able to access the most recent findings, advancements in care and new approaches, in order for individuals with brain injury to receive the greatest possible support and care."

The conference coincides with the brain injury awareness week and has been organised by the neuro-rehabilitation unit at Neath Port Talbot Hospital with support from law firm and injury experts JCP Solicitors and with backing from brain injury charity Headway.
