Tens of thousands of Australians experience or are at risk for developing Late Effects of Polio (LEoP), including a younger cohort who recently migrated to Australia. LEoP is a late onset progressive decline in physiological function, affecting polio survivors’ participation and quality of life, being related to prior exposure to the polio virus. Polio survivors without paralysis can also develop this condition. LEoP is not acute polio, just as shingles is not chickenpox. Most survivors require multidisciplinary care and use support services. LEoP symptoms not identified and managed, can cause worsening symptoms - frustrating clinicians and patients. Learn more by requesting a workshop, or by attending a scheduled workshop.
