In this webinar, Dana will challenge the idea that clinical neuropsychologists are primarily assessors of cognition. She will argue that skills in delivery of interventions and rehabilitation are equally essential, with the potential to add substantial value and impact to our role across a wide range of clinical settings. Dana will outline considerations and recommendations to help guide the selection, effective delivery, and implementation of evidence-based neuropsychological interventions for adults with brain injury and illness. She will provide an overview of the roles neuropsychologists can play in delivering a range of cognitive, psychological and behavioural intervention types, from brief and occasional to extended and regular. Dana will present an overview of what is known about the clinical competencies required for intervention delivery, and methods for sustainable implementation of interventions across clinical settings.
