About Markham Stouffville Hospital
The Markham Stouffville Hospital Paediatric Diabetes Program is the longest running diabetes program in York Region, caring for patients up to 18 years of age. Its multidisciplinary team includes a paediatric endocrinologist, diabetes nurse educators, a registered dietician and a social worker.
Upon diagnosis, children are scheduled for a series of visits to the Paediatric Diabetes Daycare Program. This unique 3-day service provides children and their families with the tools and skills needed to manage their condition, including medication management and nutritional education. Children are then guided and supported through follow up, every 3 months until the age of 18, through the Paediatric Diabetes Clinic. It provides phone support for families who have questions about their child's diabetes management. Diabetes ID was created by Anmol Tukrel for the Markham Stouffville Hospital Paediatric Diabetes Clinic and its content is based of its Young Adult Transition Guide for adolescents with Type 1 Diabetes.
