More than 100 attended Webinar #2 on Clinical Research

On Wednesday, March 15, 2017, Research CP, a collaboration between CPRN and CP NOW with a mission to engage patients, families and practitioners to set a cerebral palsy research agenda, hosted its second educational webinar about clinical research and comparative effectiveness. The session was led by Susan Horn, Ph.D, of University of Utah. We appreciate Dr. Horn’s insight. It was recorded so if you missed it, you can tune in.

The program continues to engage the CP community as demonstrated by the fact that more than 100 joined the webinar and the Q and A session went past 9 pm ET. More than 275 people have watched the first webinar on the overview of Research CP.

Also hundreds of people have contributed CP research ideas through the Codigital collaborative survey platform that is part of Research CP! There is still time to submit your ideas. Please take the tour when you first start with Codigtial as it explains the process. (Note: You must complete the first webinar to receive an invitation to the Codigital community survey.)

We have just three webinars left in the Research CP series. Next week on Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 8 pm ET Amy Bailes, PT Ph.D, from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, will present on Quality Improvement.

Applications are still being accepted (up until March 31, 2017) to attend the workshop in Chicago in June. Currently we have 45 applicants. After you watch the first webinar which was recorded, there is a link to apply.

Many thanks to all who participated and to Dr. Horn for making a complex subject more relatable for all.
