Kevin Cross

Profile

I am a qualified occupational therapist with 12 years’ experience of working in general hospitals, rehabilitation units, outpatient teams and the community.  I am a highly motivated and effective practitioner.

I first began working as a brain injury case manager in March 2008, and in that time have provided extended primary input to more than 20 people from a very wide variety of backgrounds and with a broad range of impairments and difficulties. I have worked extensively with brain-injured males with challenging behaviours, but I also have broad experience of working with people with other varied complex needs. I also have experience of providing paediatric brain injury case management.

I am an advanced practitioner member of British Association of Brain Injury Case Managers

I have extensive experience in providing detailed assessments and creating client-centred treatment programmes for people with a variety of complex conditions; including traumatic brain injury, stroke, acute disseminated encephalomyelitis, bipolar disorder, dementia, cerebral palsy and general orthopaedic injuries.

I work effectively with multi-disciplinary teams and have collaborated on many complex discharges from hospitals to the community and community rehabilitation programmes.
