The International Arthrogryposis Consortium in the SPOTlight

Wednesday, December 6, 2023 12:00

Working to advance knowledge on Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC), the IAMC lab led by Noemi Dahan-Oliel, OT, PhD, brings together key stakeholders including clinicians, researchers, and people with lived experience worldwide.

Currently, the lab is working on a multisite registry combining phenotype and genotype with patient-reported outcomes, the development of a condition-specific measure, and caregivers’ experience in AMC.

In this virtual presentation, Shahrzad Nematollahi, Epidemiol, PhD, and Clarice Araujo, OT, PhD, postdoctoral fellows in the IAMC lab, will highlight ongoing research projects that focus on identifying a common language in AMC, epidemiological profiles, a new functional classification system, and the co-development of rehabilitation guidance and its implementation in practice.
