Tune in to Tonight’s Webinar on Quality Improvement

Tonight, Wednesday, March 22, 2017 at 8 PM ET, we will conduct our third webinar in the Research CP series. Amy Bailes, P.T., Ph.D., of Cincinnati Children’s Hospital, will present on Quality Improvement methodologies. This webinar will demonstrate how treatments and outcomes can be improved more rapidly than typical clinical research methodologies through an iterative process that includes doctors, therapists, patient families and others working together. Sign up here to get access information for the webinar or the recording afterward.

Research CP is an initiative to set a patient-centered research agenda for cerebral palsy. It consists of a series of webinars in March and the first week of April, a collaborative community survey of research priorities, a workshop in Chicago in June 2017 and a white paper describing the resulting agenda. Research CP is a collaboration of the Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) and CP NOW and partially funded through a Eugene Washington PCORI award. The initiative started with our first webinar on March 8, 2017 and you can still register to participate in Research CP. The in-person workshop attendance will be by invitation only after a brief application. Applications are due March 31, 2017. Applications are made available upon watching the first webinar.
