Innovations in Rehabilitation from Around the Globe
This IISIG webinar series aims to engage interdisciplinary rehabilitation researchers, clinicians and service providers from around the world. We strive to exchange knowledge and promote capacity-building through active networking and global engagement.
Paul Perrin is a Professor of Data Science and Psychology at the University of Virginia. He also serves as Co-Director of the Polytrauma Rehabilitation Center Traumatic Brain Injury Model Systems Program at the Central Virginia Veterans Affairs Health Care System and is an incoming editor of the journal Rehabilitation Psychology. His research area of “social justice in disability and health” encompasses three facets: (a) cultural, familial, and international approaches to disability rehabilitation and adjustment, particularly in medically underserved and minority populations with neurological conditions; (b) social determinants of health (e.g., stigma, access to integrated care and telehealth, personal and collective strengths); and (c) social justice approaches to understand and dismantle oppression.
- Learn methods for identifying and explaining some of the sources of TBI outcome disparities
- Learn approaches for leveraging the strengths of individuals with TBI from medically underserved minority communities to maximize rehabilitation outcomes
- Learn about evidence-based TBI caregiver interventions that incorporate family values

- Neuropsychological Consequences of Covid-19
With guest speaker, Professor Barbara Wilson, OBE , PhD DSc, CPsychol, FBPsS, FmedSC, AcSS
Although we know a considerable amount about the medical aspects of the new corona virus, SARS-Covid-2 and the illness it causes namely Covid-19, less is known about the neuropsychological aspects. There indications that strokes, encephalitis and hypoxia may occur after Covid-19 and that, in addition to the well-acknowledged difficulties with fatigue and deconditioning, people who have been severely ill may have cognitive, emotional and behavioural problems that require a referral to neuropsychology and/or neuropsychiatry services. We report on 70 patients referred to neuropsychology at St George’s Hospital, London.
