Following the success of the first edition of this event, we are pleased this year to present a virtual conference

on Saturday December 5, 2020 (from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm).


The event is intended for parents of children with cerebral palsy, but also for family and friends who want to learn more about the subject. Professionals are also welcome to join the discussions.


The four institutions who partnered to create the first edition: the CHU Sainte-Justine, its Marie-Enfant Rehabilitation Center, the Montreal Children's Hospital and the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Canada, have collaborated again to gather experts of diverse backgrounds to address this topic.


Together, they will explore topics that were inspired by the results of the first edition's satisfaction survey, within these 3 themes:


► Medico-rehabilitation 

► Surgery 

► Social

This second edition is still part of a global initiative called MUSCO. The four Montreal institutions have taken a cooperative approach to improve the living conditions of children with musculoskeletal disorders requiring complex care, by developing various projects such as this family-oriented event.
