Type 2 Diabetes Network

Type 2 Diabetes Network

Font Size:

It is estimated that over 90% of diabetes cases are related to type 2 diabetes. 1 The most prominent risk factors for type 2 diabetes relate to lifestyle factors and it is increasingly being classified as a preventable and/or reversible disease.

What is the Type 2 Diabetes Network?

The BC Patient Safety & Quality Council, in partnership with the Institute for Health System Transformation & Sustainability, are leading the formation of a network focused on sharing, developing and applying innovative practices to improve outcomes for people living with type 2 diabetes across BC.

Our work focuses on improving collaboration and knowledge transfer in leading healthy public policy, population and community health interventions, lifestyle practices related to the prevention, management and reversal of type 2 diabetes. We help accelerate the use of expert knowledge and experience from patients and researchers. We support shifts in how this disease is prevented and managed by both patients and clinicians by sharing the latest evidence and innovations, developing resources and taking sustainable action to apply new practices in the real world.

We work with partners from across the system, including clinicians, researchers, policy makers, educators, innovators, community and business leaders, and patients to improve the course of type 2 diabetes in BC.
