Research Summits

A key activity of IMPACT for CP is the coordination of research summits. The purpose of these events is to bring leading researchers in the field together to identify knowledge gaps and define strategies and processes to facilitate breakthroughs in CP research. Outcomes include the development of core sets of outcome measures for use in clinical trials and preparation for prospective individual patient meta-analyses.

Summit frequency is dependent on available funds and current scientific priorities.

The first three summits were sponsored by the Balnaves Foundation
