On Friday 28th April, we held our 3rd International Paediatric Spasticity, Orthopaedic and Postural Management Conference in the Rochestown hotel in Cork. 230 people attended the conference, with some travelling from Canada and the UK to attend. We had 24 expert speakers from Ireland and abroad, all working in the area of Paediatric Physical and Neurodisability, particularly with Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, and Neuromuscular conditions. The conference included case studies in relation to Orthopaedics, Spasticity (Upper & Lower Limb), Postural Management, Specialised Seating and Assistive Technology. On the day, delegates were encouraged to team build between hospitals, agencies and network/primary care teams to find a consensus on the optimum care of various paediatric conditions.
