Medical Alerts Booklet

The Medical Alerts booklet has been developed by PWSA | USA with contributions from members of IPWSO’s Clinical and Scientific Advisory Board and outlines the important considerations for routine or emergency treatment of a person with Prader-Willi syndrome. The booklet is aimed at physicians and it is recommended that families take this with them when attending medical appointments, hospital or any medical treatment. Earlier versions of this booklet have been translated by IPWSO into many languages.
