New: Neurofibromatosis HealthPathway

GPs are in an ideal position to work with other specialists in caring for people with NF. HealthPathways Melbourne, in collaboration with the Royal Children’s and Royal Melbourne Hospitals,  has created a pathway to help GPs manage the community care of both children and adults with NF1.

Check out this wonderful new pathway: Neurofibromatosis

If you are not part of this HealthPathway, contact your local team and ask for access or even better, to have the pathway localised.
