Could you #JointheFight against the misdiagnosis of PSP & CBD by raising awareness of the symptoms?
We are calling out for people to help ‘Red Flag’ the symptoms of PSP & CBD to aid earlier diagnosis and improve care pathways.
The #JointheFight campaign follows the release of new evidence from the PROSPECT study, which indicates approximately 50% of people living with PSP & CBD are initially misdiagnosed with similar neurodegenerative conditions such as Parkinson’s.
We want to fight against the misdiagnosis of PSP & CBD to ensure everyone affected receives specialist care and support when they need it most.
To do this, we are encouraging our supporters to #JointheFight by reaching out to their local MP, GP surgery or raising awareness on social media.
People are urged to get involved in the campaign by
- Writing to their local MP
- Sharing ‘Red Flag’ posters with their local GP
- Adding a #JointheFight frame to their Facebook profile picture
Carol Amirghiasand, PSPA Director of Engagement, said:
“The results of the PROSPECT study are extremely significant in terms of the number of people being misdiagnosed. We want to use these ground-breaking findings to promote earlier diagnosis and ensure people receive the specialist care and support they need.
“We hope as many people as possible will get involved and #JointheFight by connecting with their local MP, sharing information with their GP surgery or adding the Facebook frame onto their own profiles.”
