NCC Knowledge Nugget Series: X-ALD ACT Sheet
The ACMG ACT Sheets and Algorithms are a clinical decision support tool for non-genetics providers that describe the short term actions a health professional should follow in communicating with the family and determining the appropriate steps in the follow-up of the infant that has screened positive. To offer a more active and engaging educational opportunity to accompany the ACT Sheets, the National Coordinating Center for the Regional Genetics Networks (NCC) is launching the Knowledge Nugget Series. These quick sessions allow providers to review the existing ACT Sheets and provide a deep dive into a particular ACT Sheet through an animated video. The second video in the series is the Knowledge Nugget: X-ALD ACT Sheet.
