Australiasian Neuromuscular Network and Allied Health and Nursing Alliance Welcomes New Members

The Australasian Neuromuscular Network's goal is to ensure excellence in diagnostic methods and clinical management, and equal access to clinical trials and new therapies, for all individuals in Australia and New Zealand affected by neuromuscular disorders.

This vision can be achieved by establishing a cohesive, integrated neuromuscular network which enables people to work together across Australia and New Zealand, for the well-being of patients.


ANN has over 300 members from all over Australia and New Zealand. Our network links clinicians, pathologists, counsellors, researchers, allied health professionals and advocacy groups for the benefit of children and adults affected by neuromuscular disorders. To go to the ANN website click here

At the 2014 ANN Annual Scientific Meeting in Melbourne, 26 clinicians and researchers including Physiotherapists, Occupational Therapists, Nurses, Genetic Counselors, Dietitians and Podiatrists discussed future directions within the ANN. The Allied Health and Nursing Alliance (AHNA) was established to develop a strong, unified vision:

"To provide one Australasian voice for Allied Health and Nursing care for patients with neuromuscular disorders and promote excellence through collaboration and research."
