New tool to help non-ALS specialists to suspect an ALS diagnosis
[caption id="attachment_20723" align="aligncenter" width="286"] ALS Association Think ALS Tool[/caption]
Recently, one of our forum members shared this unique flow-chart that is available on the ALS Association (ALSA) website. According to ASLA:
“thinkALS is an easy-to-use and powerful diagnostic tool that can help reduce the time it takes to diagnose ALS and refer people to multidisciplinary ALS centers.”
NOTE: *This tool is aimed primarily at non-ALS specialists. This tool cannot be substituted as a diagnostic instrument but used only as a diagnostic guide. Always consult with your doctor when seeking diagnosis information.
Questions for our forum members: Do you find this flowchart helpful in tracking your own symptoms? Would you feel comfortable sharing this chart with your physician? What suggestions do you have as to how more non-ALS specialists (and general practice physicians) could have better access to this tool?
