CPPN supports and in turn is supported by existing and developing regional patient support groups which address any pituitary disorder. It aims to provide services at the national level which do not duplicate the efforts of the other organizations.
One of the CPPN goals is to be able to properly direct every Canadian pituitary patient to the resources they require so that none are forgotten, abandoned or undiagnosed, and all can experience successful outcomes.
Our Board of Directors are patients, caregivers and participants in the health care community from across Canada. CPPN is supported by a Canadian network of physicians and surgeons.
The mission of the CPPN is to support pituitary patients, caregivers and health care providers in Canada to do what is necessary to ensure pituitary patients live fulfilling lives by:

b. Have unfettered access to surgical therapies;
c. Have unfettered access to pharmaceutical therapies;
d. Have early access to new therapies; and
e. Have unfettered access to financial coverage for the therapies they require.
