EDUCATION, RESEARCH AND SUPPORT
The mandate of the Canadian Neuropathy Association is to “EDUCATE” the patients in how to obtain services and support, and also how to advocate for themselves. We are here also to educate the Doctors (family doctors and specialists), as a lot of them do not understand the full impact that Neuropathy can have on a patient and his/her family. Lastly, we are here also to educate the family to the fact that even though you may not see anything physically wrong with your family member they are indeed in a lot of pain and emotional distress.
“RESEARCH” is a very important part of Neuropathy, without it we would not have the drugs to help manage the pain. The Canadian Neuropathy Association is here to help by campaigning and lobbying the Municipal, Provincial and Federal governments for more funding directed toward research.
The Canadian Neuropathy Association is here to help by giving “SUPPORT” to neuropathy patients and their families. We intend over a period of time to set up support groups in every Province and Territory in Canada. To do this we need your help. We need volunteers in every Province and Territory to come forward and become part of the Neuropathy community.
If you wish to volunteer your time to help us with a support group in your area, please follow this link!
