CP-NET

CP-NET (or the Childhood Cerebral Palsy (CP) Integrated Neuroscience Discovery Network) is an Ontario research-based innovation initiative designed to improve the care of childhood CP from prevention to treatment. CP-NET, funded by the Ontario Brain Institute, involves more than 30 researchers from 15 academic and clinical sites (such as ErinoakKids) and also includes patient advocacy groups and the industrial sector.
 
The vision of CP-NET is to create a partnership program among Ontario-based researchers, clinicians and stakeholders to transform the lives of individuals with, or at risk for, CP and their families by accelerating the development of new neuroscience discoveries.
 
ErinoakKids Involvement
ErinoakKids is part of the Clinical Database Platform of CP-NET. This means that we are one of nine clinical sites across Ontario that recruit children with CP to participate in research, helping CP-NET acquire a large database of information about clinical risk factors, neuroimaging, genetics, neurodevelopmental factors, as well as the psychosocial and participation dimensions of children’s lives. The database will allow researchers to better understand the number of kids affected by CP in different parts of Ontario and to study a variety of risk factors for, or causes of, CP (i.e. clinical risk factors before, during and after childbirth, family history, etc.). You can learn more about the database and how you can get involved through participation flyer
