Who should attend?

This program is designed for anyone who is newly starting on insulin injections or has been on insulin and would like to better understand how it works, how and when to give it for best results.

Program Format:

1 - 2 hour group session

How do you get in to the program?

You will need a referral from your RDPCN family doctor.

If you are already seeing a RDPCN nurse, psychologist, mental health counsellor, recreation therapist or pharmacist you can ask them about a referral.

Your commitment:

Bring your list of questions and concerns for discussion along with your insulin and injection equipment.  You will give yourself an insulin injection under the supervision of a registered nurse to observe technique.
