Course Summary:

Pain and fatigue are both exceedingly common complaints amongst adults with cerebral palsy. Despite increased interest and research in this area, they remain difficult to assess and treat for a number of reasons. In this course, pain and fatigue in adults with CP will be explored by a panel of presenters including researchers, clinicians and those with lived experience, with a goal of increasing awareness and understanding of how to identify, assess and manage these complex challenges.

Learning Objectives:

a. To increase knowledge of health problems and related factors in adults with CP, among which pain and severe fatigue are the most frequently mentioned;

b. To learn best practices of treating pain and/ or fatigue in adults with CP

c. To understand how to apply treatment options to decrease pain and/or fatigue in adults with CP in clinical practice.
