The WMS has been providing advice for people with neuromuscular disorders, and their healthcare providers since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. We produced a document outlining recommendations for Covid-19 and people with neuromuscular disorders which has been prepared primarily for patients, carers, general neurologists and non-specialist medical providers. It is intended to inform neuromuscular specialists particularly regarding frequently asked questions and basic service requirements. We have also produced a document aiming to answer questions regarding the newly developed vaccines against Coronavirus SARS-CoV2, asked by people with neuromuscular disorders. This is a rapidly developing field, and the WMS will of course keep this advice in regular review. We have been delighted that WMS members from around the globe have now translated the documents into so many languages which demonstrates the true value of sharing this information as well as the international reach the neuromuscular community has.
The WMS have been approached by the World Health Organisation (WHO) to coordinate the dissemination of information on guidance on clinical management of COVID-19 to the national organisations in the neuromuscular community and other important communication. We have therefore established this community network because we would like to create a central list of all the national societies and networks who would like to be involved.
If you believe your organisation should be listed here, please complete this short registration form. If you are not already a WMS member, you will be prompted to setup a free online WMS Account before you can fill in the form. If you have any queries, please contact Clare Beach firstname.lastname@example.org.
