Symposium – Late Effects of Polio

Did you think that polio in NZ was yesterday’s problem? Not so…

A survey of Polio NZ’s members found that one of the big problems they face is the low level of knowledge among health professionals about the Late Effects of Polio, also known as Post Polio Syndrome. To address this need, University of Otago, Wellington and Polio NZ are jointly hosting a one day symposium in Wellington for health clinicians on the Late Effects of Polio.

This highly interactive symposium will bring together the clinical teams, the researchers and those with lived experience of this debilitation condition to improve outcomes for all.

There is a registration fee for this event - registrations via the link.
