The Imperatives of DMD

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.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank the patient organizations and medical professionals who have provided us with translations of the Imperatives into the languages below.

To disseminate this information as widely as possible, we would be very pleased to hear from anyone who would like to translate the Imperatives into their local language.

PLOS have published (free to download) an academic paper about the Imperatives of Duchenne - download it here. We are delighted that this paper has now also been translated into Spanish.

Please contact the TREAT-NMD Secretariat if you can help!
