    Collapse Classification and Coding for Cleft Lip and/or Palate

    In this webinar, Dr. Allori will review the anatomical variation that exists in cleft lip and/or palate. He will then provide a brief overview of historical attempts at cleft classification, description, and notation (documentation). Emphasis will be placed on the LAHSHAL and CLAP notational systems. Finally, he will present an overview of the ICD-10-CM system used for diagnostic coding in clinical practice and the ICD-10-CLAP expanded code set that may be used for research and epidemiologic surveillance. For further reading, the attendee is referred to PubMed references #26339868, #26523325, and #27891780.

    Collapse Genetics 101: A Primer in Cleft and Craniofacial Genetics for the Non-Genetics Provider

    This webinar was originally accepted as a Teaching Course for ACPA's 77th Annual Meeting.

    This lecture-based foundational course is designed to help explain the basics of genetic and environmental causation of common cleft and craniofacial conditions. This will serve as a primer on topics like inheritance patterns, genetic family trees, basic genetic testing strategies and interpretation of results. We will discuss the role of a genetic counselor versus a clinical geneticist and what a formal genetic consult entails. Attention will be given to different specific syndromic and non-syndromic diagnoses and describe how a clinician might work to recognize a child at risk for a formal genetic diagnosis. As a part of this education we will explain how different genetic tests may or may not help identify a suspected problem, when and how certain tests should be ordered, and how those results are interpreted. Lastly, we will touch on how genetics researchers are working to identify new candidate genes which may have a role in cleft and craniofacial conditions.

    Collapse World Cleft Coalition: Creating International Treatment Guidelines

    This webinar was originally accepted as a Teaching Course for ACPA's 77th Annual Meeting.

    The International collaboration between six organizations involved in long term delivery of cleft care, in the development of an agreed set of globally-recognized minimum core practice and best practice guidelines for safe and comprehensive cleft care. In addition to creating these guidelines, it was the collaborative process between the founding NGO's that was the unexpected strength and success of this initiative. It is an example of diverse organizations collaborating in the enhancement of cleft care. The purpose of this panel discussion is to present results of joint efforts to establish best practice guidelines and to solicit and engage attendees to discuss their experiences in building and supporting worldwide cleft care.
