What is Trip?

Trip is a clinical search engine designed to allow users to quickly and easily find and use high-quality research evidence to support their practice and/or care.

Trip has been online since 1997 and in that time has developed into the internet’s premier source of evidence-based content. Our motto is ‘Find evidence fast’ and this is something we aim to deliver for every single search.

As well as research evidence we also allow clinicians to search across other content types including images, videos, patient information leaflets, educational courses and news.

1. Comprehensive care of the ambulatory child with cerebral palsy (GMFCS I and II): A Canadian perspective

Comprehensive care of the ambulatory child with cerebral palsy (GMFCS I and II): A Canadian perspective In Canada, cerebral palsy (CP) is the most common physical disability, affecting approximately 2 to 3 per 1000 individuals. Paediatricians are sure to encounter and care for children with CP and their families. The role of the general paediatrician in caring for a child with CP is crucial, from diagnosis to providing a ‘medical home’; from ensuring care coordination to delivering (...) levels I and II) on specific health issues and domains.

3. What is the threshold dose of upper limb training for children with cerebral palsy to improve function? A systematic review. (Abstract)

What is the threshold dose of upper limb training for children with cerebral palsy to improve function? A systematic review. Neuroplasticity is harnessed through high-intensity or high-dose training. Given the costs and time burden for families of children with cerebral palsy (CP), it is important to quantify which rehabilitation training approaches and doses confer the largest clinical gain. The main objective of this systematic review was to determine any threshold dose of upper limb training (...) needed for children with CP to achieve clinically significant functional improvements.This systematic review included studies if they were as follows: randomised controlled trials; participants had a diagnosis of CP or brain injury; mean age of participants was 0-18 years; and intervention was an active upper limb training intervention. Two raters independently extracted data. Data were pooled and analysed using a receiver operator characteristic (ROC) curve and odds ratios to investigate the dose

4. Prevalence of depression, anxiety, and substance-related disorders in parents of children with cerebral palsy: a systematic review. (Abstract)

Prevalence of depression, anxiety, and substance-related disorders in parents of children with cerebral palsy: a systematic review. To estimate the prevalence of mental illness in parents of children with cerebral palsy (CP).This is a systematic review that follows the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis Protocols in the search for observational studies determining the prevalence of depression, anxiety, and substance abuse in parents of individuals with CP (...) and anxiety in parents. Factors such as a child's degree of functionality and socioeconomic level may influence the frequency of mental disorders in parents. However, these studies have heterogeneous samples and applied different criteria to characterize their populations.Depression and anxiety are more prevalent for parents of children with cerebral palsy (CP) than parents of typically developing children. The child's illness severity is a risk factor for mental illness in parents of children with CP

10. The relationship between neuroimaging and motor outcome in children with cerebral palsy: A systematic review - Part A. Structural imaging. (Abstract)

The relationship between neuroimaging and motor outcome in children with cerebral palsy: A systematic review - Part A. Structural imaging. Conventional Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (sMRI) is a mainstay in Cerebral Palsy (CP) diagnosis.A systematic literature review was performed with the aim to investigate the relationship between structural brain lesions identified by sMRI and motor outcomes in children with CP.Fifty-eight studies were included. The results were analysed in terms (...) of population characteristics, sMRI (classified according to Krägeloh-Mann & Horber, 2007), gross and fine motor function and their interrelation.White matter lesions were the most common brain lesion types and were present in 57.8 % of all children with uCP, in 67.0 % of all children with bCP and in 33 % of the group of mixed subtypes. Grey matter lesions were most frequently registered in children with dyskinesia (n = 42.2 %). No structural anomalies visualized by sMRI were reported in 5.7 % of all cases
