The ATEM Institutional Policy Network’s successful forum series provides an opportunity for network members and other interested parties, from across Australasia and beyond, to come together to share case studies and best practice examples, refine policy development concepts and models, review institutional and sectoral policy issues arising from TEMC, work through policy challenges in specialised and general policy areas, and engage in discussion of ‘hot’ topic policy issues with guest presenters. The Forum is scheduled to coincide with the Tertiary Education Management Conference in Perth.

TEFMA is please to support their official charity BrashA-T Ataxia. In lieu of speaker gifts at each TEFMA hosted event, TEFMA has pledged to done to BrAshA-T.
Ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) is a primary immunodeficiency disease that affects a number of different organs in the body. It is a rare and incurable disease often described as the worst parts of cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy and cystic fibrosis. A-T occurs when a child is born with both copies of the “ATM” gene disrupted, which prevents his or her cells from producing any ATM protein. As children with A-T lack the ATM protein they are unable to properly repair or respond to certain types of DNA damage, giving rise to genetic instability and as a consequence, an increased risk of cancer, in fact, a risk 1,000 times greater than the general population. About one-third of children with A-T will develop cancer.
For reasons yet unknown, A-T affects the cerebellum, which is responsible for muscle control. As the cerebellum cells start to die, impaired muscle control results in difficulty with balancing, walking, co-ordination and fine and gross motor skills. This eventually leads to a loss of any movement or activity that requires the use of a muscle – eye movements, speaking, writing, swallowing, bladder control, breathing, coughing. Children with A-T are generally confined to a wheelchair between the ages of 8-10 years old, and rarely survive beyond their 20s.
BrAshA-T aims to raise awareness about A-T and to raise much needed funds for ongoing research currently in progress.
