Diabetes Education/Care Resources

Diabetes education may be available in a variety of settings, depending upon your local resources. The best source to readily identify what is available in your community would be to contact the National Office of the Canadian Diabetes Association at:

1-800-BANTING (226-8464) or www.diabetes.ca
They maintain a national directory and will be able to provide contact information specific to your community. Then contact your local chapter of the Canadian Diabetes Association for direction to available diabetes education and care resources and support groups. It may be a hospital, Community Health Centre or community visiting agency. Contacting any one of these agencies will then provide you with a list of potential referral points for Specialized Diabetes Foot Care and Education.

Internet Resources – Education:

www.diabetesontario.org

The provincial Diabetes Ontario Website (provided by the Northern Diabetes Health Network, a not-for-profit publicly funded organization) is a resource for people with diabetes across the province. The Registry of Programs offers valuable information about the diabetes education and management programs that are funded by or through the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care by providing details about the services of each program and how they can be accessed. It is hoped that this Registry of Programs will make it easier for people affected by diabetes to access diabetes education and management services as close to home as possible.
