Cerebral palsy in under 25s: assessment and management

National Institute for Health and Care Excellence

Approximately 1 in 400 children born in the UK will have cerebral palsy. A variety of physical symptoms can be seen in people with cerebral palsy, but it is possible to minimise the impact on the patient’s quality of life with appropriate management. Early intervention from a multidisciplinary team can improve the prognosis of cerebral palsy patients. Ensuring that patients and carers are informed about the condition will help empower them to be involved in treatment decisions.

This new Guidelines summary discusses risk factors, red flag signs, multidisciplinary care, and includes an algorithm for the identification of cerebral palsy.
