CP-Achieve webinar

Join ACU HDR student James Czencz for a webinar where he will discuss a groundbreaking research project: Riding the Waves of Change: From Research to Community Revolution - 'Unleashing the power of inclusivity by promoting beach accessibility for people living with disability and their families'.

 The project began with a comprehensive systematic review of exercise interventions for adults with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and a qualitative study focused on understanding the wants and needs of adults with CP who use wheelchairs. The findings from these studies have led to the creation of a remarkable Beach Accessibility community event.

The discussion will highlight the impact of this research-driven initiative, highlighting how insights gained from the systematic review and qualitative study have not only informed but also shaped the design of Beach Accessibility Day. This event was tailored to meet the wants and needs of not only adults with CP but also all people living with a disability and their families. The success of this event has become a beacon of inclusivity, offering opportunities for community physical activity participation at the beach, including walks, surfing, and fostering a sense of community.

Join in sharing the success of this CP-Achieve inspired project, learn how this project has initiated change, and listen to those who participated in the day and how they have been positively affected by it. We will also explore how this research-inspired day has created an appetite for change within the community and local council.

Celebrate the power of research to inspire community engagement, challenge preconceptions, and create tangible change in the lives of people living with a disability, the community at large, and local government.

James Czencz is a physiotherapist working in rural South West Victoria, an early career researcher at ACU and Surf Lifesaver at Port Campbell Beach.
