We have formed a new foundation.
AUSTRALIAN MITOCHONDRIAL DISEASE MEDICAL NETWORK LTD (Mito Medical Network) every donation will help. Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.
Although mitochondrial disease was first conceptualised around 1960, the complexities that cloud the clinical, diagnostic, and genetic characteristics of this illness has markedly hindered our progress in its understanding since. From the onset of first symptoms, whilst journeying through the diagnostic odyssey towards the complex conclusion that rests in the cavern of treatment options, the management of the mitochondrial patient has developed into a fragmented array of perplexities.
The Mito Medical Network is a newly formed professional body for specialists and medical practitioners working in the area of mitochondrial disease. Inclusive of clinical researchers, nurses, allied health and other healthcare professionals, our network, through affiliating and therefore unifying all those managing the mitochondrial patient nationally, strives to advance their daily medical care.
Advancing the clinical management of the mito community is paramount to our purpose, vision and goals, and is to be achieved through bettering medical awareness, education, standards and clinical research networking, whilst advocating to all key stakeholders in the patient’s medical care.
As we develop our website and network, we thank you for your patience and generous support.
