Why we created the Network
We have often heard from patients and families across Canada that they have no idea where to turn for treatment or that they have experienced long delays in either determining their diagnosis or accessing treatment. To address this, we have created the Mesothelioma Health Network. Our vision is that Canadians with mesothelioma and those at risk will have the best possible outcomes through improved access to diagnostic expertise and through the effective sharing of information.
Objectives of the Network
- Foster information exchange, sharing of expertise, peer support
- Advance knowledge, influence practice, build capacity
- Develop innovative tools and education/training opportunities
- Improve patient access to academic clinical trials
- Create opportunities for new clinical trials
- Inform efforts to develop evidence-based policy and practice
How the Network operates
The Network is a voluntary organization without any fees. A scientific advisory committee provides guidance and strategic oversight to the Network. Day-to-day operation of the Network is administered by a project coordinator, working on contract with the CMF.
