S4CCC: Propelling Learning Through Collaborative Research


The 3rd S4CCC conference was held on March 23, 2023. 

S4CCC Guideline Series

37 cleft professionals drawn from 7 disciplines and hailing from 23 countries stepped forward as Solutions Group (SG) members. Inspired by the momentum generated at the CLEFT 2022 conference in Edinburgh (UK), their task was to develop and test practical recommendations for moving Comprehensive Cleft Care forward in Low and Middle-Income Countries (LMIC). Following analysis of surveys and roundtable discussions, groups have compiled their recommendations into the following downloadable resources in English, Spanish and French.

Sharing and application of these resources are encouraged with credit to the Solutions4CCC conference and Circle of Cleft Professionals.
