Overview

One significant consideration for children with cerebral palsy (CP) throughout their lifetime is the risk of orthopaedic complications, with reports that 35% of all children with CP develop hip displacement. There are a variety of surgical options recommended to prevent complete hip dislocation. Complications following these surgeries are common,  with high re-operation rates.

Clinical practice outcomes have shown that preventative care may be an option. There are no clinical guidelines on standard preventative interventions to assist physiotherapists in instructing parents of children with CP.

This course is designed to help fill this gap by educating the therapist and/or caregiver on current evidence and clinic outcomes that could help prevent hip dysplasia in this population group.
