CPIP and Our Vision
What is CPIP?
The Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway is a framework for the assessment of the musculoskeletal system in children with cerebral palsy.
This website is aimed primarily at professionals who look after children with cerebral palsy. There is a small section under construction for children and their carers which will be expanded in the future.
What is our vision?
To improve the lives of Children/Young People with Cerebral Palsy by offering a high quality, standardised programme of regular physical and radiological examination, enabling early detection and treatment of secondary musculoskeletal conditions and facilitating multidisciplinary management.
How is it helping?
The video to the right summarises a scientific paper published in the Bone and Joint Journal in 2020. It shows how CPIP in Scotland (CPIPS) has already improved the care of children with Cerebral Palsy.
CPIP is supported by a National Network consisting of members of the Association of Paediatric Chartered Physiotherapists (APCP), the British Academy of Childhood Disability (BACD) and the British Society for Children's Orthopaedic Surgery (BSCOS).
