The NZSIGN webinar series forth session is presented by Dr Jonathan Hackney
This webinar will explore the research and assessment of mild cognitive impairment, as well as discussing the contention in the research about what MCI actually is, how we go about assessing for it, and why this is important to consider across settings.
Jonathan is a neuropsychologist/clinical psychologist currently working across a clinical rehabilitation setting and in a research role. Clinically he works in neurorehabilitation and pain management services. His ongoing research interests include post-stroke early vocational rehabilitation, psychological factors that influence recovery from mTBI, and developing a co-designed pain service for individuals with SCI. He completed his PhD looking at screening for mild cognitive impairment in community dwelling older adults, and exploring whether it was possible to efficiently screen for those meeting MCI criteria.
