Chronic Disease Network & Access Program (CDNAP)
Our shared vision is to collaborate with all organizations, care providers and agencies working with chronic disease prevention and management to improve the quality of life for Northern residents living with a chronic disease. It is our goal to create best practice networks across communities, and jurisdictions that enable improved access to effective care and case management. Respect for culture and personal wisdom of families and clients living with a chronic disease is paramount to all our efforts.
