IN THE NEWS.....

Raphael Medical Centre's neuropsychologists Anita Rose and Barbara Wilson along with Samira Kashinath - February Authors of the Month

In a recent interview given to Routledge, the publishers of their book 'Surviving Brain Damage After Assault', they talk about why they wrote the book and that they "wish to convince rehabilitation staff, medical professionals, health care funders and families that considerable gains can be made even after a long period of reduced consciousness". In the book they will describe and show readers the type of care patients can receive if politicians, health care purchasers and society in general recognise the value of rehabilitation.

The Raphael Medical Centre's resident neurospychologist, and on of the worlds leading experts, Dr Anita Rose, was recently interviewed by News Medical and asked for her thoughts on why MS patients don't always engage with specialists.

In the interview, Dr Rose said 'I believe that often it is a lack of patient understanding about the clinical implications of not taking proactive action that could be considered a significant factor in discouraging some people with MS from accessing services and support. Many people with MS have “invisible symptoms” such as fatigue, bladder issues or mild changes in cognition and as they “manage” to live with these issues compared to loss of mobility they can believe the potential severity of the condition can be underestimated.

In addition, a lack of awareness about the clinical benefits of early intervention, and a lack of patient understanding about the range of treatment options available are considered key factors in dissuading some people from regular engagement with a specialist.
