A Clinical Excellence Network (CEN) was formed in 2012-13 to focus on multisensory impairment (MSI) and visual impairment (VI). The group covers the UK and Republic of Ireland and is registered with the Royal College of Speech and Language Therapists (RCSLT). Membership is open to all those with an interest in the communication and eating and drinking needs of children, young people and adults who have multisensory impairment (MSI) or visual impairment (VI).
Clinical Excellence Network (CEN) is the name recently adopted by the RCSLT to replace the term Specific Interest Group (SIG).
The MSI / VI CEN meets twice a year. The venue, date and programme for the next meeting have yet to be agreed, though it is likely to be in April or very early May and will include the AGM.
