    About 2018 AusCP-CTN Education Week 2018 1st - 6th November, Allambie Heights, Sydney - Hosted by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance


    The AusCP-CTN CRE aims to foster and develop current and future leaders in cerebral palsy research and clinical practice. Our vision for the future workforce for children with Cerebral Palsy is national capacity building comprising individuals (Medical/Allied health) with expertise in more than one key area of research and/or training (basic science/neuroscience, epidemiology, clinical/health services initiatives, and translation/implementation).

    Following the success of the Education Week in 2017, the 2018 AusCP-CTN Education Week will be another great opportunity for the network to showcase the work being done to improve early diagnosis and intervention for children with, or at risk of, cerebral palsy.
