Why Self Refer For Diabetes Education?

Diabetes educators are licensed health care professionals—Registered Nurses and Registered Dietitians among others—who specialize in helping people with diabetes understand how to best manage their diabetes. The counseling and support that diabetes educators provide is known as diabetes education. Many of the healthcare professionals who provide these services also carry the designation Certified Diabetes Educator (CDE). Diabetes educators have a unique skill set and serve as essential support for patients and providers.

Individuals can initiate a referral for Diabetes Education by contacting:

Mississauga Halton Central Intake Program

905-338-2983 extension 4872

Once the self-referral has been initiated, your family doctor or other health care provider will be contacted to complete the process and the referral will be sent to the diabetes program.

The Diabetes Education Program will contact you directly to schedule an appointment once they receive your referral.
