Does the WBPCN provide education about Insulin Pumps?

The WBPCN Central Clinic is actually the only clinic in Fort McMurray that is accredited by Alberta Health to initiate patients on Insulin Pumps through the Alberta Health Insulin Pump Therapy Program; our clinicians have experience with a wide variety of pump technology, and keep in close contact with pump manufacturers in order to be an authoritative resource for children and families using insulin pumps. In addition to our 1:1 care, we also regularly host group inservices and invite patients to learn more about the new pump models emerging on the market.
