Consumer and community innovation funding opportunity workshop


Making life easier for those living with cystic fibrosis – MIME/CF workshop
October 25, 12pm to 1pm AEDT


Be part of developing new and meaningful solutions to the real-world problems of people living with cystic fibrosis.

The Monash Institute of Medical Engineering (MIME) is working with the 65km for Cystic Fibrosis community and Monash Partners Academic Health Science Centre in an effort to help make life easier for those living with cystic fibrosis.

Applications are invited for initial seed funding of projects for new technologies in engineering, software and computer applications to provide possible solutions to identified themes.

After consultation with those living with cystic fibrosis and clinicians working in this space, examples of current needs within the cystic fibrosis community include:

  • Scheduling of inpatient and outpatient appointments
  • Providing real time feedback to health services that are not complaint orientated
  • Medication management of scripts, repeat scripts that is targeted for adults
  • Positive Expiratory Pressure Aids that build on current available apps

Please note this funding opportunity is about creating something that would make life with cystic fibrosis a little easier to manage in the real world.

To hear further on these needs, a workshop will be held (details above) where representatives from the cystic fibrosis community along with clinicians affiliated with MIME and Monash Partners Academic Health Science Centre will elaborate on the needs identified. This workshop will give engineering and IT researchers the opportunity to consider these identified needs and propose MedTech based solutions.

Application forms for this funding opportunity will be made available after the workshop.
