The program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer2Peer educational approach, the program targets to improve everyday practise and the way child healthcare professions advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors are likely to be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms, and it is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients.
SPOT THE EARLY SIGNS OF MUCOPOLYSACCHARIDOSES (MPS)
4 COURSES - 19 MODULES
Misdiagnosis of Mucopolysaccharidosis (MPS) results in late diagnosis and the late start of treatment, which has significant consequences on long-term outcomes. This gap usually results in confusing symptoms with other conditions, most notably; (a) trying to address symptoms directly and therefore delaying actual diagnosis and treatment, or (b) referring the patient to the wrong pediatric specialties causing further delays in the condition’s management chain.
The courses are free to attend and a certificate of attendance will be provided by the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute for those who will attend a module. Visit each course below and register for free to access the recorded videos of each module.
