MedsCheck Program for Ontarians living with Diabetes

The MedsCheck Diabetes service is provided to patients living with type 1 or type 2 diabetes and is an opportunity to engage your patients in a focused medication review including advice, training, monitoring and education on diabetes. As many patients living with diabetes may have other medical conditions, pharmacists are expected to provide advice on overall therapy management as well as for diabetes.

The objectives of the MedsCheck Diabetes Program include:
