MG NSW recently collaborated with independent medical education provider Healthed to produce a podcast interview as part of their Clinical Takeaway series.
This podcast helps to raise awareness and educate healthcare professionals about our rare disease. The interview covers issues such as the increasing diagnoses of MG, symptoms, how to test for MG, and referral and treatment goals.
The MG NSW Committee thanks Dr Fiona Chan for her time and for sharing her valuable knowledge, and the team at Healthed for making this podcast happen, particularly Dr David Lim who interviewed Dr Chan.
