This activity provides an overview of management and care of people with cerebral palsy as they present in general practice, from childhood through to adulthood. Common health and psychosocial issues experienced by individuals with cerebral palsy and their families are explored through a series of multiple choice questions. The activity covers assessment, management, follow-up and referral.

Relevance to General Practice

GPs have a central role to play in ensuring the provision of high quality continuity of care to individuals with cerebral palsy. Active engagement and coordination of specialist and multidisciplinary care by GPs for people with cerebral palsy and their families is required. This includes annual health assessments, regular review and referral to specialist services. GPs require an understanding of the management of associated health issues and the relevant services and supports available, so that patient care is optimised.
