Action Cerebral Palsy Report Launch
I recently attended the launch of the Churchill Fellowship Report on UK cerebral palsy provision by Action Cerebral Palsy. At the launch I signed the Action Cerebral Palsy Pledge.
While at the launch I heard how Amanda Richardson and Caroline O’Shea from Action Cerebral Palsy travelled to Australia, the world leader in cerebral palsy research as part of the Winston Churchill Memorial Fellowship 2018 award.
They explored Australia’s pioneering intervention models for children with Cerebral Palsy, gaining a greater understanding of the impact the country’s cerebral palsy register has had on improving education and health provision for young people.
They examined how best practice in clinical techniques, technology and policy have improved outcomes for children with CP in Australia. Amanda and Caroline also used their time to investigate Australia’s CP register, assessing how easily one could be set up in the UK.
