Diabetes Health Thunder Bay is very involved in the teaching of health care students. By working with these students we are reaching our goal of delivering the latest developments in diabetes with them. We have student nurses, dietetic interns, medical students and medical residents observe our teams in action on a regular basis. In addition to this we are frequently asked to do presentations as part of the students learning experience.
Our work is always evidence based and adheres to the current Canadian Diabetes Association's Clinical Practice Guidelines for the Prevention and Management of Diabetes in Canada. Staffs at Diabetes Health also actively attend Canadian Diabetes Association Professional conferences as well as other educational workshops available. This puts us on the cutting edge of the latest research.
Through our students from the Northern Ontario Dietetic Internship (NOSM) we support and supervise research.
