How confident are you about integrating specialist care into individualized care plans for adolescent and adult patients with spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)? In this educational activity leading specialists will review patient cases from their clinics in four short webcast modules. Dr Emma Ciafaloni will discuss the implementation of medical treatment; Dr Oscar H. Mayer will examine the transition process of patients with SMA from pediatric to adult pulmonary care; Dr Sally Dunaway Young will discuss physical therapy and functional assessments; and Dr Brian Snyder will review orthopedic issues and care in different types of patient with SMA. The supporting infographic will provide you with an overview on the roles and responsibilities of the different members of the multidisciplinary SMA care team.
