Patient/Family Member Gathering - Ottawa

CAP/ACP President, Wendy Sauvé, will be in attendance in Ottawa to facilitate the first ever Patient/Family Member Gathering. We plan to:

  • share the latest survey results: Access to Heme Treatment in Canada 2018 survey and the Skin-based Porphyria in Canada 2018 survey
  • discuss access to care for patients with porphyria in Canada
  • support the creation of informal patient networks across Canada. Because porphyria is a rare disease, patients and their family members rarely meet someone face-to-face who has the disorder. We are trying to support these connections.
  • discuss advocacy strategies to improve access to comprehensive care for Canadian porphyria patients.

If attendees request this, we will:

  • provide access to English and French information
  • provide Skype access for some attendees

This gathering is open to members of the CAP/ACP - remember that membership is free. If you have already applied to be a member, please make certain that your membership is current. Members may bring up to 2 guests. 

If you have any questions, please contact us:
