Preview: Brain/Mind Interface: Clinical and Medicolegal Challenges

Brain & Mind Logo

Join us for a thought-provoking conference on Oct 05, 2023, at The Royal College of Physicians, 11 Saint Andrews Place, London, NW1 4LE. This in-person event will explore the challenges and opportunities associated with the brain/mind interface. 

Whilst cultural, psychological and social factors impact the access to interventions such as vaccination, inequalities of access to assessment and treatment for complex neuropsychiatric problems are also driven by similar factors but are magnified by socio-cultural perspectives of what ‘illness’ is, what constitutes a disability, the differences between visible and invisible impairments and the impact of stigma on acceptance of both people with these conditions and the healthcare professionals who treat them. 

The challenges of a lack of parity of esteem for physical, cognitive, and mental illness are played out day to day across a wide number of settings not only in health and social care but also in medicolegal practice. This conference seeks to understand some of the problems that health inequalities cause and solutions for them.

Experts in the field will share their insights and experiences, and there will be ample opportunity for networking and discussion.

Whether you are a clinician, researcher, or legal professional, this event is not to be missed.
