Consumers and other “C” Words in consumer involvement in Cerebral Palsy research

Dr Margaret Wallen PhD MA BAppSc (OT) is an occupational therapist with a long-standing interest in paediatric research, outcome measurement and evidence-based practice. She is passionate about consumer engagement in research and was honoured with a Churchill Fellowship which enabled her to harness the knowledge and expertise of eminent international research centres respected for their partnership with consumers, and applies the learnings to cerebral palsy research locally.
