The Brain Injury Rehabilitation Trust (BIRT)'s clinical team comprises professionals from a wide range of disciplines. All of our clinicians are recognised as having expertise in the management of brain injury. The team is led by a consultant in neuropsychology and rehabilitation, and includes clinical psychologists, a speech and language therapist, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and rehabilitation support workers.
Clinical practice is based on our neurobehavioural approach and focuses on a combination of social and behavioural interventions to aid recovery of independence. The emphasis of assessment is on a systematic and structured observation of behaviour and skills in everyday situations and tasks.
Clinical governance is promoted through BIRT's Clinical Executive, a national forum of consultants in neuropsychology and rehabilitation. Led by Dr Rudi Coetzer, the Clinical Executive is committed to promoting clinical governance, training and research, as well as developing and reviewing clinical policies and procedures.
