Last year Mac Keith Press sponsored the hosting of a group of internationally recognised clinicians and research scientists to discuss mobility and function priorities for individuals with cerebral palsy.
A 5-days training course “Evidence based medicine and research in rehabilitation of childhood disabilities» has been organized on July 15-19, 2019 as a University of Pisa Summer School by the European Academy of Childhood Disability, with the support of the IRCCS Fondazione Stella Maris.
Lectures recorded during the course are available for viewing now.
The COVID-19 pandemic has in many parts of the world made it necessary to impose strict restrictions to reduce the spread of the disease and to avoid overwhelming healthcare services. These restrictions and the concerns regarding the COVID-19 illness have had an immense impact on individuals with a childhood disability and their families, and on the professionals working with them.
Goal setting can be a challenge, but even so it is essential that we do it well for children with disabilities and target what is really important for children, young people and their families.
