About the event

Brain Injury Australia’s 8th National Brain Injury Conference will be held from November 23rd to 25th, 2020 in The Holme Building of the University of Sydney – sponsored by the University, and in partnership with its Brain and Mind Centre.

Founded in 1986, Brain Injury Australia is the nation’s peak advocacy organisation representing the over 700,000 Australians living with a brain injury. Alongside providing policy advice to Commonwealth, State and Territory governments, and representing consumers on a range of advisory groups, Brain Injury Australia also drives multi-year public education campaigns on: the leading cause of traumatic brain injury (TBI) – falls – due to the ageing of our population; people with a brain injury in the criminal justice system (as many as 80 per cent of adult prisoners report 1 or more brain injuries); the leading cause of death and disability in children who have been abused – inflicted TBI (sometimes referred to as “Shaken Baby Syndrome”); TBI in the military (1 in every 10 Australian Defence Force personnel who served in the Middle East reported a post-deployment TBI); women, domestic and family violence and TBI; and concussion in sport.

Brain Injury Australia’s annual Conference has become one of the premier learning and development events on the disability calendar – driving improvements in services and supports for people living with a brain injury, their families and carers.

For the first time, the Conference will include concurrent sessions and feature three Pre-Conference Workshops, to be held Monday 23rd November, on: Positive Behaviour Support following brain injury; domestic and family violence and brain injury; and concussion/ “mild” TBI.
