Abstract

Describe perceived cause, environmental influences, and consequences of falls or near-falls in ambulant adults with cerebral palsy (CP). Methods. Adults with CP completed postal surveys and follow-up semistructured interviews. Surveys sought information on demographic data, self-nominated Gross Motor Function Classification Score (GMFCS-E R), falls, and nearfalls. Interviews gathered additional information on falls experiences, near-falls, and physical and psychosocial consequences.
