The Ontario Telemedicine Network is one of the largest telemedicine networks in the world. It uses two-way videoconferencing to provide access to care for patients in every hospital and hundreds of other health care locations across the province. They reduce hospital readmissions, transform primary care, and expand home and community care across Ontario. SDNPC primarily uses this option for dermatological and mental health purposes due to the year-long waiting periods currently experienced in our community.

Diabetes education is available at the Sudbury District Nurse Practitioner Clinics. Education is provided individually or as a group. The program is open to anyone with diabetes, who is at risk for diabetes, or a caregiver for a person with diabetes. It may also be a chance to refresh your knowledge, or find out what’s new if you have not been to diabetes education in a while. The program is organized and run by our Dietician who is available to guide you through diabetes and diabetes self-management. Remember that diabetes education is most effective when it’s ongoing, so ask about a visit.
