Guide to ALS Patient Care

If you are a family doctor or general practitioner with a patient recently diagnosed with ALS or a patient you suspect may have ALS, the Guide to ALS Care for Primary Care Physicians is for you! To ensure the best possible quality of care, it is critical that patients with ALS have primary care physicians who are knowledgeable about their disease and who work in collaboration with an ALS specialty team.

The Guide will help you:

  • Recognize signs and symptoms of ALS
  • Understand ALS progression, symptom management, changing patient needs, and the importance of interdisciplinary ALS care
  • Help your patients and caregivers cope with living with this very complex and progressive neuromuscular disease
