Professional Education

As leaders in the diabetes community, the LSCD Certified Diabetes Educators (CDEs) worked with Diabetes Canada to create Building Competency in Diabetes Education Manuals, which includes The Essentials Manual and the Advanced Practice Modules. The Essentials Manual is the foundation of the CDE Exam in Canada. LSCD CDEs update the manuals every 5 years as Diabetes Canada updates their Clinical Practice Guidelines, technology advance, and new research is published.

Courses Offered

Intensifying Diabetes Management Practicums are designed to help CDEs provide the highest quality of care to complex DM patients, keep informed of current diabetes care best practices, and maintain their credentials.

The CDE Exam Prep Workshop is designed to help prepare future CDEs to write the examination. Participants will work through key competencies as outlined by the CDECB, practice multiple choice questions, identify problem areas, and discuss study tips with experienced CDEs.

Please note: the LSCD 2021 Practicum Series has been cancelled. To effectively manage and prioritize patient care during COVID-19 the LSCD will not be able to offer the 2021 Practicum Series.

The LSCD team remains committed to resuming our programs and will keep you informed as updates arise. Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

Practicums are open to non-CDE and CDE health care professionals alike. The practicums allow non-CDEs to build their knowledge on diabetes care in preparation for the CDE exam. See also: CDE Exam Prep Workshop, below. 

For CDEs, the practicums will help you provide the highest quality of care to complex DM patients, keep informed of current diabetes care best practices, and maintain your credentials. Each practicum provides approximately 6 hours of education – see each session’s details for specific education time awarded. A certificate will be awarded.
