Dr. Unni Narayanan has created two leading outcome measures for children with ambulatory and non ambulatory cerebral palsy — the Gait Outcomes Assessment List (GOAL) and Caregiver Priorities & Child Health Index of Life with Disabilities (CPCHILD).

Dr. Unni Narayanan, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon and outcomes researcher, will share his vision for helping parents manage the health outcomes for children with severe (non-ambulatory) CP which is called CPCHECKlist©. The webinar will take place on Monday, May 16 at 8 PM ET and parents, caregivers or clinicians should register in advance to receive an invitation. Dr. Narayanan is the creator of the CPCHILD which is the leading outcome measure for health-related quality of life for children with severe CP.

Cerebral Palsy Co-morbidities and a Health Tech Evaluation Checklist (CPCHECKlist©) is a new parent-reported list of specific health items and co-morbidities, commonly experienced by children with severe cerebral palsy (CP) and CP-like conditions. In addition to reporting the presence and perceived severity of each health issue, the parent/caregiver also indicates which of these they wish to have addressed at any given clinical encounter. The CPCHECKList includes a section on the use of health-technologies. The CPCHECKlist is intended to serve as a companion health module of the CPCHILD questionnaire or as a stand-alone health/comorbidity index to guide clinical decision-making or to quantify the health status of a child with severe CP in a standardized, comprehensive way for research and clinical management.

Please join us to learn about this important new tool which will help parents manage the care of their children. Dr. Narayanan will be available for live Q&A directly following this presentation. MyCP Webinar Series registrants will receive an email with login details and a recording will be posted within 24 hours.
