Course Description:

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) publishes 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 video in the series is the Knowledge Nugget: Classic Galactosemia ACT Sheet.

Target Audience: Healthcare Providers, Public Health Professionals

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:
1.    Identify the purpose of the ACMG ACT Sheets.
2.    Describe how a newborn screening differs from a confirmatory test.
3.    List the next steps a provider should take once they receive an out-of-range newborn screening result for Classic Galactosemia.
