Introduction to rare diseases

This course aims to educate primary care clinicians about neuromuscular disorders, putting these in the context of other rare diseases. It gives disease-specific information for some of the more common neuromuscular disorders and describes common features and key differences of a range of neuromuscular conditions. It discusses the importance of early diagnosis and new emerging therapies. The course also highlights when one should suspect a neuromuscular disorder and what to do. The associated module, ‘Motor development in children’, provides you with a structured approach to assessing children’s motor development and highlights some key red flags.
