Improving transition for young people with cerebral palsy


Dear Colleague,

We would like to invite you to participate in a short questionnaire.


In Ireland, people with cerebral palsy receive healthcare from children's services up to the age of 18, after which they transfer to adult services. International research identifies key practices that can improve the transition process. However, there is no research examining how the transition is managed for young people with cerebral palsy in Ireland.


The Ignition study aims to examine the transition from children’s to adult health services for young people with cerebral palsy in Ireland.


If you are a nurse, who provides services to people with cerebral palsy in the Republic of Ireland you are invited to participate.

Data collection

Your participation in this study is voluntary. If you decide to take part, we will ask you to complete a questionnaire about your experience of working with people with cerebral palsy. This should take about 10 minutes to fill in. The questionnaire can be completed online here (https://bit.ly/312KhG4). The questionnaire can also be completed over the phone, by post, or in person.

The study is being led by the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI) and the Central Remedial Clinic (CRC) and funded by the Health Research Board and CRC. RCSI, CRC, and Enable Ireland research ethics committees have approved this research.
