Paediatric Diabetes Network

Last updated on November 24, 2022

Ensuring the best possible health outcomes for Ontario children and youth affected by diabetes is the goal of the Paediatric Diabetes Network (PDN). PCMCH oversees coordination of the PDN by fostering system improvement, providing opportunities for professional development, promoting links between paediatric diabetes education programs (PDEPs), assisting with the development and dissemination of resources and guidelines, promoting consistency in standards of practice, and providing individual program support.

The PDN consists of 35 specialized PDEPs, including 30 secondary-level programs in communities across Ontario and five tertiary-level programs located in Toronto, Ottawa, London, Hamilton, and Kingston.
