  • Title
    • SERENITY: SEveRE Neurological Impairment and children with medical complexiTY
  • Summary
    • Severe Neurological Impairment (SNI) is a term that has been used to describe a global impairment of the nervous system. This group of children, who have unique challenges, could be considered a sub-group of those with more general medical complexity. However, there is no internationally agreed definition of severe neurological impairment and, therefore, a paucity of literature on its prevalence and medical and social consequences. This information is vital for future resource planning so we can provide the very best care for this vulnerable group of individuals. Objectives 1.To create a consensus definition of SNI 2.To quantify medical complexity in this group 3.To assess wellbeing in the families of children with SNI
