What is the Patient Pathways Program?

The Patient Pathways Program is a federal government initiative funded by the Centre For Community-Driven Research (CCDR) which aims to increase the capacity of patient organisations to help patients navigate the health system and access all that is available to them, including clinical trials.

As a recipient of a grant from CCDR, the Mito Foundation can now provide a tailored Patient Pathways Program offering centralised and coordinated care to the mito community.

The program will support you by:

  • Guiding you through the healthcare system to access all the relevant services
  • Strengthening your ability and confidence to proactively manage your condition
  • Helping to educate your community, including allied services
  • Coordinating appointments with external healthcare organisations and facilities
  • Assisting with ongoing care following hospital admission, discharge, and accident and/or emergency visits
It is important to note that the program will not provide treatment advice. The main objective is to develop tailored care plans, provide practical and emotional support, education and connection with existing services.


Call our helpline now on 1300 977 180 to discuss how the program could benefit you.
