Comprehensive Cleft Care for those born with a cleft lip and/or palate (cleft) can require a range of care, including nutrition support, surgery, speech therapy, orthodontics, dental care, and psychosocial support. Treatments such as the development of multiple prosthetic appliances can be extensive and tiring. They are, however, essential to help babies and children swallow, eat, grow, and learn to speak. Digital technologies are key to improve universal access to cleft care, especially in remote areas.
In this episode, host Tony Johnston welcomes Ashley Barbour and Prof. Juan Pablo Gomez Arango to discuss about the potential of digital technology to increase access to cleft care. They also delve deeper into how growing up with cleft and receiving treatment throughout life can help people have successful, meaningful, and impactful lives.
