CNETS Vision and Mission Statement

Vision Statement

The Canadian Neuroendocrine Tumour Society (CNETS) is widely recognized by patients and the medical community across Canada as an organization that improves the quality of life and survival for NET patients in three ways:

  1. by raising awareness of the disease and the latest available  diagnostics and treatments;
  2. making sure that patients, caregivers, health care professionals and others have the information they need in the areas of medical and scientific research, treatment and support; and
  3. by supporting patients and helping them navigate the best care options.

CNETS provides support and education for Canadians on all aspects of NeuroEndocrine Tumours (NETs). We help Canadian NET patients seek and obtain personalized diagnostic and therapeutic options. We also advocate on behalf of individual patients and for policies to support NET patients.  The organization does its work in collaboration with medical and scientific experts, stakeholders and partner associations.
