The Adult Program at the Diabetes Education Centre (ADEC) provides education for the prevention and management of diabetes. We offer a multidisciplinary approach to diabetes education.
Our diabetes educators are registered nurses and dietitians, and include certified diabetes educators and certified pump trainers. Extended team members include: physician specialist, community family physician, chiropodist, occupational therapist, pharmacist and physiotherapist. They are supported by clerical staff and volunteers.
At the ADEC we are committed to providing quality education for the prevention and management of diabetes. The program is based on the Canadian Diabetes Association’s Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada.
We accept referrals from family physicians, specialists, other healthcare professionals and through self or family referral. People who have been diagnosed with impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose tolerance, prediabetes, type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, or gestational diabetes may be referred.
