    David Cummins, Claire Kerr, Karen McConnell, Oliver Perra

    Using valuable data from the Northern Ireland Cerebral Palsy (CP) Register collected over more then 20 years, the authors demonstrate that severe intellectual disability is more common in children with bilateral compared to unilateral cerebral CP, with a greater risk in children born near term. As well as guiding the focus of screening for such problems in this population, this serves to demonstrate the value of well curated registry data for children with CP.

    Parents’ perspectives on conflict in paediatric healthcare: a scoping review

    This scoping review collates parental views on conflict in paediatric healthcare, during palliative and end of life care.

This review also maps the views of parents onto what is already known about health professionals' views and demonstrates how parents have unique views that may contribute to the dynamics of conflict.
