Musculoskeletal care in cerebral palsy: Present and future




Convenor: Mr Tahir Khan, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons, Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital

Organised in association with RNOH.

CPD: 5 credits (applied for)

The second London CP meeting aims to continue the active discussion forum amongst clinicians interested in the musculo-skeletal care of patients with cerebral palsy (CP). This is firmly rooted in a multidisciplinary approach involving paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and allied specialists in order to improve and standardise the care of CP patients. Specific topics discussed will be the transition of patients from paediatric to adult care, and the possibility of setting up a London wide network for the orthopaedic care of all patients with cerebral palsy.

This meeting is aimed at community paediatricians, paediatricians, orthopaedic surgeons, physiotherapists and occupational therapists.
