We are proud to launch our updated leaflet entitled ISCP Positional Plagiocephaly- An Information Leaflet for Families. This leaflet was originally developed in 2015 by the Torticollis Working Group which was a sub group of the CPP. In 2022, it was updated by the CPP committee using ISCP Guidelines for Developing Patient Information Leaflets. These guidelines are available from the ISCP and are based on national guidelines such as NALA and consent. The CPP worked with a graphic design team to help produce the updated leaflet. The leaflet is available in PRINT and DIGITAL versions. It can be printed easily as 2 A4 landscape pages and used as a booklet. Alternatively, the digital version can be emailed to parents and it can be accessed on devices. It is also a popular leaflet for Health Promotion and prevention of plagiocephaly and can be shared with PHNs and other healthcare providers.

Please find attached two handouts to assist Chartered Physiotherapist's in the treatment of infant Torticollis. These handouts are the work of the Torticollis Working group and were updated in 2023 in conjunction with the Chartered Physiotherapists in Paediatrics. They contain exercise ideas to assist the Chartered Physiotherapist in the treatment of Torticollis and preference to look to the right/left side. The group included a variety of exercise ideas and exercises should only be prescribed by the Chartered Physiotherapist as indicated after a thorough assessment of the infant and their specific needs.
