≪Organizer Abstract≫
Since common cognitive and social problems addressed by patients with brain injuries are different depending on each stage, so are the corresponding neuropsychological approaches. When we think of the recovery process in a patient with a brain injury, the treatment should move sequentially from the acute stage to the chronic stage. This symposium invites three neuropsychologists to summarize and share the kind of problems patients have in each stage and discuss the effective approach for each stage in the perspective of assessment and rehabilitation. For example, in the acute stage, although there is need for earlier rehabilitation, more research into this approach must be addressed. In the convalescent or chronic stage, more effective rehabilitation techniques have to be considered in order to support the patient's ADL once they leave the hospital. In conclusion, we must consider the gradation of neuropsychological approaches and discuss the issues concerning the continuity of treatment.
