The Diabetes Education Centre
The Diabetes Education Centre provides outpatient information, support and teaching for adults diagnosed with diabetes. This includes persons diagnosed with Type 1, Type 2, and gestational diabetes. Families are also encouraged to participate.
The centre is staffed with a Registered Nurse and Registered Dietitian who are certified Diabetes Educators and who have significant training and experience in diabetes care.
Staff work closely with many health professionals including family physicians, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and foot care specialists to ensure that the Diabetes Education Centre provides the best possible care.
To access this service and to become a client of the centre we require a referral from a family physician, walk-in clinic physician or community health centre. Once a referral is received the client would then be contacted and appointments booked.
