Type 2 Diabetes (T2D) Education Course

Course Overview

This 8-week course is in addition to the five EPCs available per calendar year under the MBS. It empowers you with the knowledge and understanding of how to manage your diabetes. Patients benefit most if they demonstrate a readiness to change, contribute to group processes effectively and have a potential for self-management.

Course Outcomes

Successful participants will come away with the ability to put into practice the strategies needed to help manage their type 2 diabetes with diet, lifestyle and exercise. They will not only know what they should do to achieve their goals but also how to go about it successfully.

This eight-week course provides the foundation for consultations one-on-one with a Diabetes Educator.

  • want to know how to use exercise to manage their T2D
  • want to learn about how to manage their T2D through diet
  • want to manage T2D with lifestyle modifications by creating good habits
