On Patient Satisfaction in Cerebral Palsy Care

Show Summary Details


The value of managing teamwork in health care is well recognized. Yet, for a variety of reasons, it often fails to provide the degree of support required. To investigate the capacity for all-round service provision in Northern Ireland, a survey was carried out to obtain both quantitative and qualitative data on the degree of social and health care support for families with a child affected by cerebral palsy, one of the most serious orthopaedic disorders. Results suggest that, while clinical medical care is generally good, the role of social support in healthcare management seems poorly defined, fragmented and variable.
