ACT Sheets for Primary Care

Developed by the American College of Medical Genetics and Genomics and the National Coordinating Center for the Regional Genetics Networks, ACMG ACT Sheets are one-page clinical decision support tools to inform the clinical decision-making of primary care proivders. Given the rarity of many genetic conditions—ACT Sheets and algorithms are excellent refreshers on the conditions, diagnoses, and next steps for patients.
