Publisher Frontline Medical Communications, with patient advocacy group Global Genes, conducted the research among HCPs from 15 therapeutic specialties, as well as nurse practitioners and physician assistants.

They found a gap in the amount of resources focused on rare diseases and management strategies of these disorders.  Nearly 90% of 1,600 respondents agreed there is a need for more professional content on rare diseases, they said.
