Central Great Southern Diabetes Education Capacity Building
The ‘Diabetes Education Capacity Building Project' aims to ensure people at risk of developing diabetes and people living with diabetes have, easier and more readily available access to a Credentialed Diabetes Educator locally.
Amity Health employs a Credentialed Diabetes Educator to deliver self-management strategies for diabetes care together with diabetes education, in the Central Great Southern region.
Amity Health’s Credentialed Diabetes Educator, in collaboration with other health care providers and community members, is forming and strengthening partnerships within local communities in the Central Great Southern.
