Improving Diabetes Self-Management

Watch our new video about how our Community Partnership Program (CPP) helps older adults with multiple chronic conditions (MCC) manage their diabetes.

The CPP is delivered by a team that includes diabetes educators and the staff and volunteers from a community centre or YMCA. Together, the team developed individualized plans of care, delivered monthly wellness sessions, and met regularly to see what could be done to better help participants reach their goals.

The pilot program that was funded by the Labarge Optimal Aging Initiative in 2013, is a success and now researchers are exploring ways to scale-up and sustain the CPP in other settings across Canada.
