Our Early Cleft Care Training Programme (ECTP), funded by an Erasmus + EU grant, has now sucessfully concluded with all project results appearing on the project website www.cleftectp.com. We were awarded a high score of 83% by an external assessor!
The project was showcased at the Sophia Children’s Hospital in Rotterdam in October and a full report is available here
The project has provided a free access downloadable one-to-two day course targeted at registered nurses or similarly qualified ‘front line’ health professionals. Course content is aimed at providing a complete overview of early cleft care from basic aetiology to issues around feeding, parental support and practical case histories. This groundbreaking project follows on from the development of our Early Care Cleft Guidelines that were endorsed by the European Committee for Standardisation (CEN) in Brussels in 2015. These can be downloaded from the homepage of this site.
