All initial education visits are provided on a one-to one basis. To maximize your learning experience it is recommended that you make appointments with both the LRD and RN. Follow-up visits are also available individually. Visits are usually an hour each, but can be adjusted as needed.
Group education is available, and may be suggested to you after your initial visit. Group education often works as a support system for people who attend.
Materials and equipment will be provided for you to take home that will be a continued source of educational development and self-management support.
