ME/CFS Australian Patient Advocacy Network
Friday 25 March 2011
A group of Victorian patients are setting up a new network:
Are you sick of our illness not being treated seriously?
Do you think we should expect more?
Join the ME/CFS Australian Patient Advocacy Network!
Who are we?
We are a group of ME/CFS patients whose ultimate wish is to recover. We are asking fellow patients to join with us in lifting our sights to advocate for appropriate medical research and treatment for our illness. Our approach is to establish a network of patients, carers and other interested people to draw on our skills, contacts and desire for change.
Our vision is that every ME/CFS patient in Australia has access to effective treatment and has a life with dignity, understanding and respect.
How do we plan to achieve our objectives?
We seek to work in partnership with ME/CFS Australia, State ME/CFS Societies and our doctors. We will also work in alliance with other groups with similar aims or independently where appropriate. Strategies may include: approaching scientific and medical institutions, politicians, government officials, research funding bodies and education organisations; to use publicity and awareness campaigns that support our goals; to leverage the recent retroviral findings into ME/CFS.
How do I join? Is there a cost? More information?
What we are not
