This webinar was originally accepted as a Teaching Course for ACPA's 77th Annual Meeting.

The International collaboration between six organizations involved in long term delivery of cleft care, in the development of an agreed set of globally-recognized minimum core practice and best practice guidelines for safe and comprehensive cleft care. In addition to creating these guidelines, it was the collaborative process between the founding NGO's that was the unexpected strength and success of this initiative. It is an example of diverse organizations collaborating in the enhancement of cleft care. The purpose of this panel discussion is to present results of joint efforts to establish best practice guidelines and to solicit and engage attendees to discuss their experiences in building and supporting worldwide cleft care.
