Monday 29th April 9-10:30am

Two clinicians, a neuropsychologist and a speech language therapist, will present clinical cases with video excerpts, illustrating lessons learnt in applying up to date clinical practice guidelines into real-world settings. Aspects of the INCOG 2023 guidelines will be reviewed, including recommendations relating to self-monitoring, metacognitive strategy training, and cognitive-communication rehabilitation. Cases presented will illustrate the importance of clear objectives and review using goal-attainment scaling, clear communication within team, the importance of initial training and ongoing fidelity checking, and the need for flexibility to account for changing psychosocial situations. Practical considerations for engaging in cognitive rehabilitation within the ACC setting will be explored. In addition, case examples will be presented that underscore the importance of both psychological and neuropsychological formulations to guide intervention.
