The Cerebral Palsy Foundation (CPF), with support from the American Academy of Cerebral Palsy and Developmental Medicine, will hold a pain symposium to identify specific gaps in the etiology, assessment, treatment, and management of pain to develop future research and clinical pathways as well as immediate pathways for providers and resources for patients. While people with cerebral palsy are the focus of this project, the outcomes will benefit others with similar physical disabilities (e.g., stroke, traumatic brain injury, etc.). Key project collaborators include the Cerebral Palsy Alliance, Founder CanChild McMaster University, British Columbia Children’s Hospital, Columbia University Medical Center, and Holland Bloorview Children’s Hospital.
