Since launching the ITPAustralia.org.au last year, we’ve been working behind the scenes to bring ITP patients and carers up-to-date Australian information about Immune Thrombocytopenia. We’ve been inundated by support from patients, carers and medical professionals from both here in Australia, but also abroad.
The ITP Support Association held their 21st Annual Conference in the beautiful city of Chester, at the historic racecourse in the North West of England in October 2018. Here’s what they got up to.
While the PDSA held their first Regional Meeting in Australia in March 2018, they hold a conference annually in the USA bringing together carers and patients and providing new information on ITP through their growing network of medical advisors.
At the end of March 2018, more than 30 people travelled from across the country to attend the first PDSA Regional Meeting in Melbourne, Victoria.
