Primary Health Care

If you have recently been diagnosed with diabetes, pre-diabetes, or need more help to build your self-management skills, your primary care provider can refer you to a Diabetes Centre near you.

As a patient, you can access self-management supports and education programs to develop the knowledge, confidence and skills to self-manage your chronic condition for healthy living. 

A team of certified diabetes educators (nurses and dietitians) work with community primary care providers and an extended care team to provide a variety of programs and services for patients of the Diabetes Centre. 

Services may vary by community, but frequently include:

  • Managing the emotional impact of diabetes, both for patients and family members,
  • Self-management group education programs, 
  • Individual counselling (nutrition, physical activity, medical management),
  • Blood glucose monitoring,
  • Medication management,
  • Insulin initiation, adjustments and follow-up,
  • Insulin pump and pre-pump training, and;
  • Link to community resources.
