The Imperatives of DMD - a single page best practice summary

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.
