The APF has developed long-term partnerships with many of Australia’s leading health professionals, hospitals and pharmaceutical companies to boost medical knowledge about the pituitary gland and pituitary disease.
The Foundation works closely with Australian and overseas organisations dedicated to improving our understanding of pituitary-related diseases and their treatment.
Australia’s top endocrinologists, neurosurgeons, radiotherapists and endocrine nurses work in partnership with the APF through:
- clinical trials
- writing articles for our Web site and newsletter
- patient seminars and discussions
- highlighting the APF services to patients
- distributing APF literature
- displaying posters and brochures in clinics and hospital wards
- promoting Pituitary Awareness Week
Heath Professionals contribute greatly to ensure the integrity of the information provided to pituitary patients and families through the Foundation. Their time and expertise is donated through their presentations at our seminars as well as supplying the Foundation with educational and informative articles.
Funding in the way of donations and sponsorship is vital to ensure the continued growth of the Foundation. Thank you to members who constantly contribute a donation at membership time – however small, the gesture is greatly appreciated, as we are conscious of the expenses that can be associated with treating and managing a chronic pituitary condition.
Corporate and private companies are now becoming aware of the work of the Foundation and expressing interest in support, whether it be a philanthrophic or financial contribution.
Pharmaceutical companies continue to sponsor APF educational activities and remaining ever conscious of belt tightening in these difficult economic times, the Foundation would like to express it’s sincere appreciation. All activities, programs and content of programs sponsored by pharmaceutical companies are independantly prepared by the Foundation and its honorary speakers.
The following pharmaceutical companies have contributed towards the Foundation's annual activities. Without this input we would find it difficult to raise pituitary awareness in the way of educational seminars and associated activities.
Additionally thank you must go to Ipsen which sponsors our newsletter. All content is independently prepared by the Foundation.
