Resource Clinician for Health Care Professionals


Waterloo Wellington Diabetes offer a Resource Clinician who is available to support diabetes educators or clinicians to further enhance their knowledge or expertise in diabetes management. 


Diabetes management has become more complex in recent years with the plethora of diabetes medications and the increasing technology, whether it be glucose meters, insulin pumps or virtual visits.  There is also the need to better understand behaviour change strategies.  The role of the Resource Clinician is to support clinicians in staying current with leading practice and to offer guidance, mentoring and support to increase their knowledge and confidence in supporting individuals with diabetes.    


Waterloo Wellington Diabetes first developed a mentoring program in 2011, through an educational grant from NovoNordisk. The outcomes and feedback from clinicians were so successful that funding was secured to continue the program to support clinicians in the region. As the expertise and experience of clinicians evolved, the role was redefined to a Resource Clinician in 2020.
