A European CFA Directory has been established in coordination with CFA research in Europe in order to promote quality improvement in clinical practice and research.
Through this effort, a multipurpose interactive EUROCAN website has been designed to advance and facilitate information exchange regarding CFA research within the EUROCRAN network. An online directory has been developed and made accessible on the EUROCRAN website: www.eurocran.org. Also included is a web-based survey and prospective registry of European patients with CFA. The interactive online speech archive designed for good practice and training in cleft lip and palate care has also been incorporated into the website.
The web-based interactive tool for CFA is the first of its kind and integrates speech examples from six European languages. The tool is useful for speech and language therapists and affected patients alike.
