The National Diagnostic and Care Protocols (PNDS) are reference documents for health professionals (general practitioners, specialist doctors, Social Security doctors, etc.). They are written by the experts of the Reference Centers Rare Diseases (CRMR) using a methodology proposed by the High Authority of Health (HAS). Their production was originally planned in the first National Rare Diseases Plan 2005-2008 and was confirmed in the Second National Rare Diseases Plan 2011-2014.
The objective of a PNDS is to explain to the professionals concerned the current optimal diagnostic and therapeutic care and the care path of a patient suffering from a rare disease given on the basis of the international recommendations already published. It also aims to optimize and harmonize the management and monitoring of the rare disease throughout the country.
Both the SENSGENE and the Rare Diseases sectors have the priority of facilitating the drafting of new PNDSs or the updating of existing PNDS.
