The Rare Disease Awareness Education, Support and Training (RArEST) Project aims to develop helpful resources and training for health professionals in their care of people living with a rare disease.
Did you know the average full-time GP has 74 active rare disease patients and that an estimated 2 million Australians live with a rare disease? Despite variation among different rare diseases, people living with a rare disease face common challenges, including a lack of awareness and timely and accurate diagnosis.
GPs are the first point of contact in the health system and are best placed to coordinate comprehensive, family-centred care for chronic and complex patients and their families.
Let RArEST know how they can help via this short anonymous survey.
