The National ME/FM Action Network is a Canadian, registered, non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the recognition and understanding of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia through education, advocacy, support and research.
Our Motto: "We are people helping people help themselves."
Our Logo, Canadian geese flying in formation, portrays working cooperatively and supporting each other.
Our informative newsletter, "Quest" is complementary with membership.
The National ME/FM Action Network addresses issues that affect patients with these illnesses. For example:
We spearheaded the drive for clinical definitions and diagnostic and treatment guidelines for ME/CFS and FMS, which were published in peer-reviewed medical journals. Overviews of these Canadian Consensus Documents have be sent to a few thousand doctors across Canada. Both the Consensus Documents and Overviews can be viewed on our website.
We have intervened in a number of court case, which affect the patient community as a whole.
Revenue Canada implimented our suggestions for revising the Disability Tax Credit form and procedure.
We have developed a variety of educational resources for patients.
And much more!
There is still much more to be done. Please help us help others!
