Improving outcome measures for patients with cleft lips and/or palates

Join a research steering committee to help improve outcomes

Link to organisation:

Full description:

One in 700 children are born with a cleft lip and/or palate. Clefts are treated in many different ways, but little is known about which treatments work best.

We are working with patients and the public to make computer programs that measure how effective cleft treatments are in everyday care, and in research. These programs will ultimately be used to improve care.

We are looking for individuals to join our research steering committee, and actively help in various stages of the project.
