Telemedicine Workgroup

Overview

Novel technologies have been recently developed to simply and inexpensively communicate across the internet. These technologies have improved our ability to communicate among regional collaborators, and enabled telemedicine outreach clinics and inpatient consultations convenient and effective. Ultimately, the technologies hold the promise removing the barrier of distance in access to genetic care and minimize the problem of insufficient numbers of genetic services professionals by making access to their expertise available to larger numbers of patients without respect to geography.  The Telecommunication/Telemedicine Workgroup was formed to investigage the use of these technologies and to identifiy ways of implementing their use for improved patient care.

SERC/GMDI announces Nutrition Management Guidelines for MSUD

SERC/GMDI announces Nutrition Management Guidelines for MSUD

Management Guidelines cover the evaluation, assessment, and management of patients known to have a particular condition. SERC and GDMI partnered to develop nutrition management guidelines based on our rigorous DNDF methodology. The creation of the nutrition management guidelines has been a multi-year project to develop evidence and consensus based guidelines of inborn errors of metabolism (IEM).   This is the first publicly available MSUD guideline to all metabolic dietitians, physicians and other clinicians. The portal utilizes a tool for development of guidelines of genetic metabolic disorders for which there is little published scientific evidence. The practice recommendations are an effort to increase standardization of care and enable outcomes studies within and across centers. When warranted by developments in MSUD research and clinical practice, these guidelines will be updated periodically and will be maintained through a Dynamic process.
