Guides for Doctors: Consensus Documents
These guides have been developed by IPWSO’s Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board to provide an overview of the most common and serious medical issues affecting people with PWS and to provide a structure for the medical evaluation of their needs. The guides have been written for use by medical professionals and allied health staff and will also be of interest to families who may wish to take them to medical appointments. The guides are available in four parts addressing four different age groups. We would encourage you to share these with friends and colleagues.
