Invitation to participate in research to promote knowledge sharing about selective dorsal rhizotomy.
Posted on Wed 20 Oct 2021

Researchers at The Children's Hospital, Westmead, Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne and Queensland Children’s Hospital, Brisbane are seeking participants to help them conduct a research survey into selective dorsal rhizotomy.

Are you:
o a parent or carer of a child with CP?
o an adult with CP?
o a clinician treating children with CP?

Do you already know about selective dorsal rhizotomy (SDR) or want to know more about SDR?

Then you are invited to take part in an online survey. It will take less than 10 minutes to complete. 

The aim of this research is to improve the information available about SDR for people with cerebral palsy and their families, and for therapists and doctors treating children with cerebral palsy. 

By participating in this survey, you will have a direct impact on guiding development of resources about SDR and the way in which they are made available to the community.  

Head here to take part in the survey

We are:
Jenny Lewis – The Children’s Hospital at Westmead
Dr Simon Paget – The Children’s Hospital at Westmead
Dr Neil Wimalasundera – Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne
Meredith Wynter – Queensland Children’s Hospital, Brisbane

Research Area: Knowledge Translation

Eligibility: Anyone who is a parent or carer of a child with cerebral palsy, an adult with cerebral palsy (≥ 18 years of age) and a clinician treating children with cerebral palsy

It’s been a weirdly wonderful time for me – you might’ve noticed I didn’t share a column with you in October? That’s because I was racing toward the finish line of my university degree, a double in Arts & International Studies if anyone was wondering. Four years of my life that unfolded in ways I never could’ve predicted.
