RCPCH: e-learning – Recognising Neuromuscular Disorders – a practical approach

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health (RCPCH), in partnership with the John Walton Muscular Dystrophy Research Centre in Newcastle and the Great North Children’s Hospital, has developed an e-learning tool which aims to help healthcare professionals identify the early signs of muscle disease.

The new e-learning resource aims to equip health professionals with the information to identify conditions such as Spinal Muscular Atrophy and Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at the earliest opportunity. This will in turn, allow treatment to begin much earlier which not only has the potential to enhance mobility and prolong life but will also allow family members to be tested to assess the risk of the condition being passed on to future generations.
