Comprehensive Diabetes Care Clinics
Each physician at the clinic holds monthly diabetes clinics. These clinics are designed to provide patients with personalized, comprehensive diabetes care. They work to support patients in improving their diabetes management and overall health. Patients enrolled into the care clinic program are scheduled to meet with their physician and one or more of our diabetes team members depending on their needs.
The diabetes team at CBFHT has been able to demonstrate that patients who attend our diabetes clinics achieve better management of their diabetes compared to those who do not.
Our team is privileged to have 3 Certified Diabetes Educators on staff.
As a testament to the team’s passion and commitment for helping patients with diabetes to improve their health, the team was the recipient of The 2014 Patients First Award for their project “Diabetes Days: Individualizing Patient Care.” This award recognizes individuals, teams or organizations from across Canada that have made innovative and effective contributions in patient-centered care.
Our diabetes program is also recognized by Diabetes Canada’s Standards Recognition Program (SRP) which acknowledges and formally recognizes diabetes education program across Canada that strive to provide the best possible care to people living with diabetes or at risk of developing diabetes. Specifically being granted this special designation recognizes CBFHT Diabetes Education Programs that offers:
- High-quality self-management education supported by an inter-professional health-care team with specialized knowledge of diabetes, and
- Best practice care that follows Diabetes Canada’s Clinical Practice Guidelines.
Once enrolled, your physician will refer you to make an appointment to attend the clinics 3-4 times a year.
If you have not attended one of these clinics but would like to, or would like to inquire about them, simply request information /enrollment from your physician.
