The Imperatives of DMD - a single page best practice
PPMD, UPPMD and TREAT-NMD are pleased to announce the
availability of a single-page summary of best-practice care in
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD). Based on the existing Care
Considerations, it will broaden awareness of the "imperatives" in
good DMD care, especially amongst non-specialists who are not
familiar with the disease and will not have read the full Lancet
publication or the condensed care guidelines developed for
families. Click here for a copy.
It is also available in other languages here.
