Practical Workshop 1: Traumatic brain injury


This workshop is one of a series of  10 practical workshops designed and presented by the Faculty of SAMLA.  The Workshops have been accredited by UCT and CPD point are awarded for each workshop.

The lectures include:

  • what counsel expects in a TBI medico- legal report; 
  • an overview of traumatic brain injury;
  • the medico-legal assessment of individuals who have sustained a traumatic brain injury;
  • special considerations in paediatric brain injury;
  • and special considerations of mild traumatic brain injury.
  • one of the golden thread lectures on analytic scientific reasoning.
  •  academic report writing.

The course culminates in the presentation of case studies.

This course will be of interest to medico-legal experts working in the field of traumatic brain injury, but many of the principles involved in the workshop apply more broadly and so this course will be of value to all individuals working in the medico-legal sphere.
