Brain injury case management involves the care and support of brain-injured individuals and their families in a range of areas, from personal injury litigation to the planning of treatment and therapy regimes.

Good Practice in Brain Injury Case Management provides a guide to effective case management, outlining all the key issues that professionals working with brain-injured people will need to know, from understanding what brain injury actually is and how it feels to experience it to strategies for rehabilitation, assessing risk and implementing support plans. The contributors are drawn from a wide range of disciplines, including social work, neuropsychology, occupational therapy and legal practice, and offer information and advice in clear jargon-free.

This is an essential handbook for case managers and all other professionals working with brain injured people.
