by Helen, Irochu-Omare Margaret

Abstract (Summary)
The extent to which customers are satified with the care they receive from the health professionals has been an important area of interest for researchers, managers and health care workers. The physiotherapy cerebral palsy clinic at Mulago Hospital in Kampala Uganda provides physiotherapy services for parents/caregivers of children with cerebral palsy. The parents/caregivers visit the clinic seeking physiotherapy services that will address their problems and those of the child. The purpose of this study was to explore the satisfaction that the parents/caregivers of children with cerebral palsy get from utilising the physiotherapy services at the clinic and to identify the barriers/problems that they encounter that might affect their attendance.
