Primary Care Diabetes Support Program
Located at the St. Joseph’s Family Medical and Dental Centre, the Primary Care Diabetes Support Program provides diabetes support and management for individuals diagnosed with type 2 diabetes who don't have a family doctor. The program also supports those dealing with various challenges that make managing diabetes more difficult, such as economic hardship, language barriers, and any issues or illnesses that can make navigating the health care system difficult.
Our multidisciplinary team assists patients to become diabetes self-managers and helps them access the resources they need to manage their diabetes effectively. We also assists family physicians in London and the surrounding area to build capacity for diabetes care in their own practices. Our team includes physicians, nurse practitioners, dietitians, nurses, support worker and specialized diabetic care providers.
The Primary Care Diabetes Support Program is part of St. Joseph’s Centre for Diabetes, Endocrinology and Metabolism, the primary regional centre for diabetes and endocrine disease management in Southwestern Ontario.
