Achieving and maintaining high quality therapies for children with CP has been a key area for the Ludvig and Sara Elsass Foundation for many years.
CPOP is a programme which monitors children and adolescents with CP. The monitoring programme means that children with CP and symptoms of CP are examined systematically at regular intervals during childhood. All observations and results are recorded and, in the long term, the knowledge we gain will benefit many people with CP.
The Elsass Foundation strives consistently to make CPOP a national programme, which will ensure that the child will get the right kind of therapy at the right time, that the child’s functional capacities and quality of life are optimised and that painful consequences of CP, e.g. hip dysplasia, can be avoided. Moreover, the Elsass Foundation contributes new knowledge in relation to the treatment of children with CP, and stimulates cooperation and communication between the different professions involved.
The Elsass Foundation will continue to lend support to establishing CPOP in all regions of Denmark. This will be achieved by means of formalised cooperation, in which the regions will be obliged subsequently to fund the cost of running the programme.
