Advances in basic neurosciences and clinical practice are changing the lives of many patients and helping them to reintegrate into society. At WCNR 2018, the interdisciplinary symposia represented the T.E.A.M spirit of ‘Together Everyone Achieves More’ to bring out the best practices in NeuroRehabilitation.
Dr Matilde Leonardi, Head Neurology, Public Health, Disability Unit, Director Italian WHO collaborating Centre Research Branch said, “Since I am a part of the organising committee in the conference, I got to interact and know Dr Nirmal Surya more. Such conferences are very important for globalising the knowledge. People come here to understand, learn and listen. “
She added, “The theme of the conference is the best because there is a considerable gap between the need and its reach. Hence, Mumbai is personifying this gap. The main aim is to bring technologies to the real people.”
As per Dr Matilde Leonardi, India is paradoxical but not alone when it comes to the idea of bringing affordable or low cost neurorehabilitation.
She also revealed the findings of the survey carried out in India. “We have done a survey with about 70 neurologists in India with families and their technique of dealing with people in vegetative state,” said Dr Matilde Leonardi.
