1st Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway UK Meeting (APCP / BSCOS)

Event details

10:00 - 15:00


Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, The 1st Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway Meeting will be held virtually on 18 June 2021 from 10:00 – 15:00.

The Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway National Network (CPIP NN) had hoped to mark the 10 year anniversary of The 1st International Meeting on the Management of the Hip in Cerebral Palsy by celebrating the significant progress made during this time with another 'must not miss' event aimed at paediatric neurologists, community paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons and physiotherapists involved with the care and treatment of children with CP.

The purpose of this meeting will still be to examine the evidence, inform and update clinicians, share good practice, facilitate equity of care and identify areas for further research but we will also look at the impact of Covid-19 has had.

Despite the shorter schedule, we still plan to examine what we have learned since 2010, review the current state of hip surveillance nationally and internationally as well as discuss funding to support a patient management system for cerebral palsy.

Additional issues such as why we consider this work as an Integrated Pathway rather than just hip surveillance, the importance of the MDT when implementing a Patient Management System and overcoming practical difficulties will also be covered.

We will of course reflect on how the Covid-19 pandemic impacted (positively or negatively) on all the above.

A full programme will be available in April 2021.

Speakers include:  Dr Gunnar Hagglund   Dr Charlie Fairhurst         Laura Wiggins         

Lesley Harper           Miss Heather Read             Members of CPIP

As this will be a virtual event, the cost will be a nominal flat rate of £25.
