The Interprofessional Group of Rehabilitation in Neuropsychology (GIRN).
We believe that neurorehabilitation efficacy depends on interdisciplinary competency, creativity and compassion of all parties involved in the process. All interested health professionals including students working in the field of neurorehabiliation can become a member of GIRN. We espouse that attention should be paid not only to the patient with acquired brain injury but also to their caregivers and environment in accordance with a biopsychosocial, holistic rehabilitation approach.
In particular, we address caregiver needs by means of psychoeducational interventions in order to improve the patient management and outcome. Our aim is to optimally support the family system by means of a network which assists in reducing caregiver burden and distress particularly on transition into community.
