The Diabetes Program is a 6-month program to help you manage your diabetes. The program involves regular appointments with a diabetes clinician in person and by telephone.
If you have type 2 diabetes, you are required to take one of these AHS classes: Diabetes: Healthy Eating or Taking Charge: Daily Management of Type 2 Diabetes before your appointment at the PCN. It is preferred that you take both classes if possible. To register for these free workshops, call 780-401-2665. To view class details, visit the upcoming Alberta Healthy Living Program guide.
Physician referral to the program is required.*
The program supports you with managing:
Blood pressure and cholesterol
Medications and insulin
Goals and reviewing targets for recommended tests
