The CIE was commissioned by the Myasthenia Gravis (MG) Association of Queensland to demonstrate the scale and scope of impacts that MG has to raises awareness and promote understanding of the need to undertake further research on the disease to mitigate the costs for patients, their carers, and the wider community. The report was based on the analysis of the first comprehensive Australian survey of patients with MG and identified the discernible and challenging impact of MG on the lives of those living with the disease, as well as their carers, and the wider community, including direct financial costs due to the impact on employment and need for assistance with everyday living through to health system costs.
