MPA believes that advocacy is walking with you to assist your voice to be heard without fear or prejudice.
As an advocacy organisation, MPA seeks to provide a national voice in the interest of melanoma patients, their families, friends and carers thereby ensuring that melanoma gets the voice it needs.
MPA is an independent not for profit advocacy & support service and we recognise that there are several ways to provide advocacy support. MPA is unique in its mission to address the gap in patient-focused access to melanoma specific information.
MPA also provides patients, families, friends and carers with access to a united voice to highlight the unmet needs of melanoma patients in Australia. We identify that our members need to have their voices heard and this is done at a number of levels:
MPA provides information, support and education programs, enhancing members’ understanding of their rights and responsibilities, not only as patients but people in receipt of a variety of Statutory and non-Statutory services.
Advocacy Through a Third Party:
This is the collection of data, tracking data trends and analysing data derived from casework and educational activities to inform systemic activities.
MPA continues to engage in activities such as Consumer Forums, Questionnaires, Surveys and other forms of data collection. This information is given as feedback to enhance the quality of life for people with Melanoma.
MPA has developed an advocacy framework which identifies and develops further aspects of our work that support the individual patient in exercising their rights and responsibilities.
