The Early Detection Clinic

The multidisciplinary team behind the Early Detection Clinic is being recognised for the outstanding impact in the detection of cerebral palsy (CP) in infants, improving outcomes through early detection.

With the implementation of the Prechtl’s General Movements Assessment, the team is able to diagnose CP significantly earlier in the patient’s life, resulting in long term outcomes for both the child and family.

The project has made a significant impact in improving the way DDH is detected, resulting in a lower risk of surgical intervention and greater outcomes for patients and families.
