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 2013 and will continue to be recognized until 2018:

  • North Lambton Community Health Centre – Diabetes Education Program
  • Diabetes Grey Bruce
  • Unison Health and Community Services Diabetes Education Center
