The website is hosted by Newcastle University and has ethical approval as an educational resource. 

PMM and PMM-NURSING have been developed by a collaborative team in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK led by Professor Helen Foster at Newcastle University. We have developed the content from our research with medical students, general practitioners, nursing students, nurses and specialists to find out what health care professionals need to know.

PMM and PMM-NURSING provide the essentials of information, informed through our research and we signpost to more information as needed.

Future iterations will include further contributions from around the world.

We welcome feedback so please do contact us.

The project was funded originally from an unrestricted educational bursary from Pfizer. Further bursaries were obtained from BioMarin and Sobi. These companies had no role in deciding what content should be included.
