Cate Clancy ensuring best practice by contributing to the new Subacute Rehabilitation of Childhood Stroke Clinical Guidelines

Working with the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute, our Paediatric Physiotherapist Cate Clancy is helping lift the standard of care for the 100 to 300 children who suffer from a stroke each year. Having helped write the new clinical guidelines for the Subacute Rehabilitation of Childhood Stroke, she is helping to ensure best practice and early intervention. Cate stresses the importance of the physiotherapists role which involves working closely with the child and their support networks to develop their functional movement skills as well as educating families, carers and school staff in how to best support the child.
