The Canadian MPN Network (CMPNN) was founded in 2014 as an organization connecting and helping Canadians from coast to coast to coast who are dealing with the challenges of living with a myeloproliferative neoplasm (MPN). The CMPNN is led by a volunteer cross-Canada Board of Directors composed primarily of MPN patients who meet virtually. The Board has a “patient first” mindset and is dedicated to improving the quality of life for Canadian MPN patients by providing education, advocacy, and support.
CMPNN initiatives are free of charge to Canadian MPN patients and their care partners and include the annual conference, a comprehensive website citing relevant, factual, knowledge-based information and resources, linkages to the medical community and active regional support groups.
The COVID pandemic affected the CMPNN just as it did all small non-profit groups by disrupting normal activities, and impacting budgets, patient participation, volunteer involvement and recruitment. The CMPNN ceased all in-person activities and migrated these to on-line activities, whenever possible. The changes prompted by the pandemic were not all negative. In some cases, online events, such as the annual conference, allowed higher participation across Canada by eliminating travel costs and the time required to participate.
The CMPNN Board developed this Strategic Plan to identify its priorities for the next three years and the actions it will take to achieve these priorities. By securing the necessary resources, including additional volunteers and funding, the Board will ensure that all Canadian patients and their support networks will benefit from the education, advocacy and support the CMPNN can provide.
Better lives for all Canadians with a Myeloproliferative Neoplasm (MPN) disorder.
