Your donations help to provide services for people disadvantaged by ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia and associated conditions.

 

2017 Flagship Project

Bridges and Pathways priority fundraising project is to establish the South Australian ME/CFS Fibromyalgia Clinic & Research Centre as a one stop shop to co-ordinate research and services for the one million Australians living with the physical conditions ME/CFS and Fibromyalgia.

The multi-agency multidisciplinary Centre will combine medical care and research projects that are patient centred and linked to improving patient outcomes for all Australians.

Priorities in the first 2 years will be:

  • A General Practice multi-pronged management pilot.
  • Research projects on the new tests and biomarkers from overseas and the private sector.
  • Evaluating patient outcomes

A major priority of the Clinic is to train more providers and to help Australians meet the National Disability Insurance Scheme and Centrelink assessment criteria.

The Tracey Ash Memorial Fund – Donate

https://www.givenow.com.au/bridgesandpathways3

This fund was set up in memory of Tracey Ash who died at the age of 26 after a long battle with unmanaged pain and increasing weakness from living with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and the associated lack of treatments. This fund is specifically directed towards helping care providers and younger people who have no access to services under current Australian health programs and funding arrangements.

ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Clinic and Research Fund – Donate

https://www.givenow.com.au/bridgesandpathwaysclinicfund

This fund is used to improve the outcomes for people living with ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. For example, it will supplement the cost of care not covered by Medicare; improve access to various allied health and other services; and support ongoing research.

There is a strong need to establish a treatment Clinic. Your donations will also support this Clinic, which is part of a larger project working to improve services, research new tests, train providers, and distribute practice tools and information on the latest treatments.

 

May 12 – Australian Awareness Initiative Fibromyalgia and ME/Chronic Fatigue Syndromes and Associated Conditions Fund – Donate https://www.givenow.com.au/bridgesandpathways

This Fund works towards raising awareness and alerting both providers and consumers to the fact that, while there is not yet a cure, these illnesses can be managed and the effects can be limited if people have access to early intervention and affordable care and services. The fund also provides information to guide people through the maze of treatments and service providers.
