Mississauga Halton Diabetes Foot Care Program

2015 Partnering for a Healthier Tomorrow Awards Recipient: Accessible & Sustainable Health Care


 

The Mississauga Halton Diabetes Foot Care Program provides preventative foot care services to high risk individuals with diabetes who have significant barriers to using existing fee-for-service programs. Working to minimize all access barriers, clinicians provide services in 11 clinic locations including: five in Mississauga, one in Halton Hills, one in Acton, two in Milton and two in Oakville, leveraging space of existing community agencies.

The establishment of these foot care clinic sites has fostered the development of new health hubs at these locations, with other health care services coming on board, resulting in a menu of services all available at one community location. 

Since implementation in June 2014, services have been provided to more than 750 patients. Results indicate improved outcomes and a decrease in patient risk for foot care complications following treatment. This community partnership model has proven to generate great satisfaction among patients and host agencies.
