Supporting people affected by Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease.

GP Training Module

PrintMuscular Dystrophy UK and the Royal College of General Practitioner (RCGP) have come together to develop a new online eLearning module for GPs. The purpose of this module is to provide helpful information on the presentation and primary care management of muscle-wasting conditions.

The module is case-based, and covers how to recognise and manage some of the more common muscle wasting conditions.


The module focuses particularly on the following muscle-wasting or neuro-muscular conditions:Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT)

  • Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • Becker muscular dystrophy
  • Facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy (FSH)
  • Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA)
  • Myotonic dystrophy
  • Myasthenia gravis
  • McArdle disease (acute rhabdomyolysis)

After completing this online eLearning module, you will be able to:

  • Understand the spectrum of muscle-wasting conditions
  • Identify the key presenting features of the more common muscle-wasting conditions
  • Describe management, including the importance of multidisciplinary care

The module takes 60 minutes to complete and comes with 1 accredited CPD point.

The eLearning module is available at elearning.rcgp.org.uk/neuromuscular
