Cerebral Palsy Management: Improving our Exposure
Wednesday, January 26 (5:00 pm – 6:30 pm EST)
Presented by: CNS Cerebral Palsy Special Interest Group (Bhooma Aravamuthan MD, DPhil; Young-Min Kim MD; Jenny Wilson, MD; Rose Gelineau-Morel, MD; Jennifer O’Malley, MD)
When: January 26, 5:00-6:30 pm Eastern
Synopsis: Neurologists and neuro-developmentalists play critical roles in early and accurate cerebral palsy diagnosis and feel compelled to take on roles as cerebral palsy diagnosticians. However, our comfort with and desired involvement in cerebral palsy management is less clear. Though training program directors largely feel that education on cerebral palsy management is important, they also feel their trainees are not as well trained in cerebral palsy management as they are in cerebral palsy diagnosis. In this Cerebral Palsy Special Interest Group Meeting, we will reprise our group-think approach that allowed us to define our role in cerebral palsy diagnosis (Neurology. 2020;95:962-72): applying the same approach, we will explore how we may improve our exposure as a field to key aspects of cerebral palsy management.
