Canadian Diabetes Association/diabetes Educator Section Diabetes Education Standards Recognition Program

The Diabetes Education Standards Recognition Program (SRP) grants recognition to Diabetes Education Centres that successfully meet the Standards for Diabetes Education in Canada (2009). Participation in the SRP is voluntary. Centres complete a self-evaluation tool, which is then submitted to the CDA/DES SRP Review Committee for consideration.

To attain recognition status, a Diabetes Education Centre must demonstrate achievement of a minimum of 80% of the Standards for Diabetes Education in Canada (2009) within each of the Outcome, Process and Structure categories. The DES would like to recognize the following Diabetes Education Centres who met the standards for diabetes education in 2012 and will continue to be recognized until 2017:

  • Trillium Health Centre – Mississauga, Adult Diabetes Management Centre
  • Hay River Health and Social Services Diabetes Team
  • Hotel Dieu Hospital Diabetes Education & Management Centre
  • Grand Medicine Diabetes Education Centre
  • Diabetes Care Guelph
  • St. Michael’s Diabetes Care Centre
  • Leadership Sinai Centre for Diabetes
