Schiarti, Veronica - Abstract

The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) conference is the annual national meeting of paediatricians.  The goal of the conference is to advance the health of children and youth, including those with special needs or disabilities by nurturing excellence in health care, education and research.  Presenting at the CPS meeting provides me an opportunity to disseminate my findings on quality of life of children with Cerebral Palsy (CP). My work is applicable at a provincial and national level and is in keeping with core DHRN values.  Our objective was to use the new International Classification of Functioning (ICF-CY) as a standard by which to compare the content of 8 different quality of life (QOL)measures.  We found that the ICF-CY provided an international accepted, structured framework for the content comparison of CP QOL measures.  The results will provide clinicians and researchers with additional information.  This is useful when selecting QOL measures.
