The American College of Medical Genetics has formed a work group of professionals in the field of newborn screening, including metabolic experts from the New England Consortium of Metabolic Programs. This group has generated a comprehensive set of ACT Sheets (action sheets) and diagnostic Algorithms, that describe the short term actions a health care provider should take in the follow-up of an infant that has tested positive for a metabolic disorder, and the basic steps for determining final diagnosis.
The complete collection of Newborn Screening ACT Sheets and Algorithms is available on the website of the American College of Medical Genetics. Click here to view them.
