Dr Phil Robinson is a pediatric lung specialist at the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne Australia. In 2013 he established a state wide diagnostic service, only the second in Australia, for the inherited lung condition Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia. Although symptoms are generally present from early on in life lack of awareness in general medical community of this progressive and incurable condition means that most patients have long periods of exposure to unnecessary and ineffective therapies before the diagnosis is made. Since the service has commenced a steadily increasing number of patients with this condition have been identified and now require specific targeted therapy from clinicians knowledge about this condition. Dr Robinson seeks to develop an educational resource for clinicians who may be exposed to patients with this uncommon condition to help guide them in not only thinking about the possibility of the disease but gaining a better understanding of effective therapies. Such an initiative would have direct implications for patient health by not only reducing time to diagnosis but also the institution of specific therapies.
