The mission of the SCPE network is to learn more about the cerebral palsies from surveillance of trends in prevalence rates, severity, associated impairments and secondary disabilities.
By using population-based surveys and registers across Europe the SCPE network aims to:
• promote harmonization and quality of definition and description of the cerebral palsies
• develop collaborative epidemiological and clinical research projects about the cerebral palsies, attracting young researchers to the field, in partnership with individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers
• disseminate knowledge about the cerebral palsies for individuals with cerebral palsies, health care professionals and key stakeholders, including via academic publications
• develop best practice in monitoring trends in the cerebral palsies
• raise standards of care equitably for all people with cerebral palsies through the life span and thus improve outcomes and quality of life for individuals with cerebral palsies and their carers
