Changing policy and practice


Wednesday 29th September 2021


Virtually via CVENT's Virtual Attendee Hub


Prof Grahame Simpson and Dr Mohit Arora


The convenors would like to invite you to the 6th Pacific Rim conference, the first joint conference of three outstanding organisations: the International Neuropsychological Society, the Australasian Society for the Study of Brain Impairment, and the Australian Psychological Society’s College of Clinical Neuropsychologists. In 2021, this conference will be held in the vibrant metropolitan city of Melbourne, in Australia. Melbourne regularly tops the lists of the most liveable city in the world, because of its fantastic culture, food, music, sport, entertainment, and spirit of open intellectual curiosity.

To reflect the difference we can make when we join together, our conference theme is “Putting our heads together to change lives”. The conference organising committee comprises a diverse group of scientist-practitioners, and we are all keen to make the conference an exciting, multidisciplinary, practically grounded, innovative program of presentations and events. In particular, there will be a focus on how our field has responded to the set of circumstances relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, including our use of telehealth for service provision.

We are compiling a program of fabulous international and national speakers who will undoubtedly inspire us to reflect on our professions and how we can maximise our impact on people living with brain conditions. These speakers will cover a range of clinically relevant topics including the costs and benefits of neuropsychological assessment; frontal lobe functions including social cognition and executive functions; dementia in indigenous communities; and telehealth delivery of services for people with brain conditions.

We’d love you to join us and hope to see you there!

Dr Kerryn Pike, Dr Travis Wearne, Dr Dana Wong
