From Dr. Rita Formisano
On 18-20 October 2011 I attended a Workshop in Bruxelles: "Towards an International Initiative for Traumatic Brain Injury Research (InTBIR)" where there was an interesting discussion on the need and utility of International Multicenter Trials on Comparative Effectiveness Research in TBI.
Another interesting conference I attended was the EBIS (European Brain Injury Society)which was held in Treviso on 25 November on "Vulnerability after traumatic brain injury: from benevolence to abuse. Medical, legal, psychological, social and ethical aspects". The medico-legal aspects of the social condition of vulnerable persons after severe TBI or ABI was shared with professionals, family members, individuals with TBI and voluntary associations. Pictures of the Treviso conference can be obtained from Dr. Paolo Boldrini.
