Specialized Services for Children and Youth invites you to join us for Breakfast at SSCY, our monthly learning series! Everyone is welcome, and there is no need to register to watch in person.

Topic: Revising the service delivery model in response to increased demand: Dealing with the plagiocephaly ‘epidemic’
Presented By: Kathy Mulder, Physiotherapist

Background: The incidence of deformational plagiocephaly (flattening of a baby’s skull) has continued to grow since the introduction of the Back to Sleep campaign. Although it is primarily a cosmetic condition, it can be associated with other diagnoses, including torticollis. Early diagnosis and intervention is ideal. Rising referral rates can impact the ability to provide timely assessment and follow up.

Our project:

  • A survey of Canadian pediatric facilities was conducted to examine variations in referral volumes and service delivery models across sites
  • Parents have been engaged to help us understand their experiences and preferences
  • We will present preliminary data from this quality improvement project and discuss our next steps to provide timely and effective care for this population

When: 8:00 – 9:00 am, Tuesday, March 13, 2018
Where: Northern Lights Room, 2nd floor of SSCY Centre, 1155 Notre Dame Ave
Parking: Our parking lot has paid visitor parking, and street parking may be available
Webinar: The session is available as a webinar; visit our website to register and watch live or to watch the recording: sscy.ca/about-sscy/breakfast-at-sscy
