The PPCP Group is embarking on carrying research to create standard protocols to work with vulnerable populations. The goal to is provide a consistent approach to improve the application of existing techniques, to establish a protocol for developing and field testing new carrying techniques with the goal of providing safe and reliable carrying support to improve outcomes for babies and parents, to provide higher level support to babies or parents with special needs.
Studies will involve creating partnerships across the carrying industry. This will result in the creation specialized committees whose goal will be to examine all aspects with the goal of create sound teaching protocols, improving understand between manufacturers and carrying consultants.
Our first steps as a small organization is to summarize and understand all the information from related fields. An interdisciplinary approach is one we strongly believe in. Second, we will foster an open environment where researchers can connect with other like minded individuals to facilitate the development of studies either by individuals or foster joint ones.
Further announcements will be made in 2017.
