Event Details

The diagnostic work-up for suspected mitochondrial disease (mito) is a step-wise procedure, with GPs playing a key role. Much of the work is done by an initial comprehensive history of the individual’s symptoms, the family history, and a full systems review. Clinical investigations are commenced by the GP to complete the systems review and confirm any symptomatology. Join metabolic physician and clinical geneticist Prof David Coman as he discusses the various diagnostic tests, organ or multi-system assessments available in primary care.

Register now for the opportunity to submit your clinical question. Join us live for an interactive discussion or receive the link to the recording after the event. Prof Coman will present for approximately 20 minutes, followed by an interactive Q&A.

Additional information/resources: On average, 10 out of every 2,000 patients seen at a general practice have mitochondrial DNA mutations, which may lead to mitochondrial disease or disease involving mitochondrial dysfunction. Let us help you provide them with evidence-based care and resources. Visit our Maybe It’s Mito GP education page.
