Specialist assessments are carried out in close liaison with some clinical and surgical teams. These sessions may involve multiple assessments (for example carried out before and after a medical or surgical treatment), or a single extended assessment carried out while brain function is being measured at the same time (using brain scanning or EEG technology).
There are two main multi-disciplinary team meetings involving the neuropsychologists
- Epilepsy surgery MDT (Fridays, fortnightly, 11.30am to 1.30pm)
- Cognitive disorders group (Wednesdays, 8 to 9am, second, third and fourth weeks of each month).
At these meetings, findings from neuropsychology are discussed with other members of the teams managing individual cases. Further follow-up investigations can then be arranged.
