Innovations in Clinical Care

In the current climate of rapidly changing health care reimbursement and increasingly limited resources, how are you delivering care better, more creatively, or more efficiently? How have you adapted care to address patient needs in ways that are not widely known or used or are revitalized? What new approaches are you working on? What lessons have you learned?

Impact of New Therapies on Clinical Care

The approval of the first treatment for SMA in December 2016, and the phase 3 clinical trials for other therapies have significantly changed the disease course of SMA. How has your care changed? What new strategies are you employing? What new new outcome measures have you identified?
