LACGH Diabetes Education Program Recognized for Excellence

(June, 2016)
The Lennox & Addington County General Hospital Diabetes Education Program has been recognized by the Standards Recognition Review Committee of the Canadian Diabetes Association as successfully meeting all of the Standards for Diabetes Education in Canada.  The review committee commended the LACGH education team for its efforts and achievements in providing superior diabetes education to their patients and their community.

To attain Recognition status, a Diabetes Education Centre must complete an external review through a self evaluation process demonstrating achievement of a minimum of 80% of the standards within each of the Outcome, Process and Structure categories.  The LACGH centre has achieved the highest possible score of 100% of the standards in each category.
The 10.6% rate of diabetes in our catchment area is noted to be higher than the national average and the age of the population served is greater than 45.  These statistics provide a very compelling reason as to why the centre is such a valuable asset in this community.
The review team commented "As a centre of excellence, the Lennox and Addington County General Hospital Diabetes Education Program will serve as a role model and will seek every opportunity to continue to improve and advance services to meet the needs of the community."
