The 1st National CPIP Meeting, 18th June 2021

On 18th June 2021, the first national Cerebral Palsy Integrated Pathway was held online. It was a great success (even if we do say so ourselves!) with just under 400 people gathering to hear about CPIP, its origins in Sweden and Scotland and its impact across the UK and Ireland.

Above you can dowload the programme and below are (most of) the presentations and posters.
