Delphi Study

In 2007, the Research Institute of Cerebral Palsy Alliance conducted a Delphi Study to help define the focus of future cerebral palsy research.

An expert panel of consumers (families, individuals), researchers, and clinicians was assembled (n=127) and surveyed using a Delphi survey comprising a recurring progression of questions.

Participants provided feedback until there was a consensus on the priority of questions for future research.
