The Diabetes Resources listing in the Health Library of champlainhealthine.ca was created in collaboration between the Champlain Regional Diabetes Advisory Committee, Diabetes Regional Coordination Centre and the Champlain Community Care Access Centre. The goal of this initiative is to provide a user-friendly online resource which lists relevant resources for professionals working with diabetics.
The resource listing plan was conceived in the summer of 2011 in response to an identified need expressed by community partners who were committed to enhancing information regarding resources available for diabetics. The need for access to information regarding diabetes services for professionals to share with their diabetic clients was identified. Discussion and development of this useful online resource evolved from there with the creation of a resource focused on providing access for all of Champlain region.
