Through the Ontario Paediatric Diabetes Network, PCMCH works to effect change in the paediatric diabetes landscape by addressing the challenges and discrepancies associated with the transition from paediatric to adult diabetes care. In 2013, PCMCH issued recommendations for a more structured and consistent provincial approach to transitioning youth living with diabetes from paediatric to adult diabetes care. The recommendations are based on the concept of transition as a process and take into consideration the needs of this patient population and the resources that currently exist within the Ontario healthcare system.
