CPRN and CP NOW Partner with AACPDM on ‘Research CP’

AACPDMThe Cerebral Palsy Research Network (CPRN) and CP NOW have partnered with the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine (AACPDM) to further ensure the success of our Research CP webinar series and workshop. Research CP – setting a patient-centered research agenda for cerebral palsy – is a Eugene Washington PCORI funded award to bring together patient stakeholders (defined as a patient or patient advocate) and medical practitioners who treat CP to establish the most important research problems to address.

AACPDM has committed to communicating about Research CP to its membership, sponsoring the travel for a number of members and disseminating the results of the workshop to its membership. The academy’s involvement ensures broad exposure of the project and involvement from the professionals committed to treating CP. All interested members will be able to take part in each of the three components of the Research CP project:

  1. Attending the webinar series of five webinars of 40-60 minutes each,
  2. Participating in the survey of research priorities
  3. Attending the 1.5 day workshop in Chicago, IL on June 16-17, 2017.

AACPDM’s support of the joint research program will increase the validity of the results through the engagement of its membership.
