Workshop: Cerebral palsy community co-creation

Help us identify the challenges faced by people with cerebral palsy during transition.

Cerebral palsy (CP) is a lifelong condition that affect patients’ movement and co-ordination. While medical care is core to the quality of life for people with CP, we believe a holistic approach is needed to understand the role of professional and non-professional support ranging from medical, physio, speech, and occupational therapies, to social care, schooling, university, sports, and arts, amongst others. We call upon the ideas and experiences of people from these different segments to share ideas and experiences in order to create and nurture a community able to improve medical and social care for those with CP.

If you are a young adult with CP, a formal or informal caregiver, researcher, scientist, or community leader, we need your help. Your participation is very important in identifying the challenges that young adults with cerebral palsy (CP) face in receiving and accessing care and support during and after transitioning from adolescence to adulthood. This study adopts a community-wide approach to various aspects of the treatment and care for people with CP.

We would like to invite you for a workshop on Wednesday 6 November (10:00 to 16:00) and Thursday 7 November (13:30 to 16:00) at Leeds University Business School, Newlyn Business School (room LG.02).
