HELP FOR YOU
Education & information
Alongside our services, we like to keep you updated with research and best practice information as we believe that knowledge is power. We hold a series of information sessions and evenings throughout the year that gives you the opportunity to hear the latest info, as well as meeting and speaking with researchers and health professionals in the neuromuscular field.
We’ll let you know about conferences and seminars organised by other providers too so you won’t miss a thing.
Community Organisation Presentations
We can also deliver tailored education sessions to your organisation. Depending on content, the session can be from 1 – 3 hours, and fees may apply. Information can include;

SAVE OUR SONS DUCHENNE FOUNDATION 2019 ACTT NOW CONFERENCE
Three members of our team travelled to Sydney in September 2018 for the Save Our Sons Duchenne Foundation 2019 ACTT Now Conference. Over two days a vast array of national and international speakers presented the latest information on Duchenne management.
A highlight was international speaker Dr James Poysky from Baylor College of Medicine in the US, who gave informative presentations on various topics.
Many of the presentations, including Dr Poysky’s referenced the Best Practice Management Care Guidelines for DMD – a family friendly version of which can be found here.
The full version of the guidelines can be found Part 1 - Part 2 - Part 3 (the newest edition, released in January 2018 which covers primary care, emergency management, psychosocial care and transition).
