Pediatric Type 2 Diabetes in Saskatchewan
Pediatric type 2 diabetes (T2D) is a rising issue in Canada. Research shows an increasing prevalence of T2D in communities around the world, including in Canada. In Canada, some of the highest incidence rates are found in the First Nations pediatric population in the Prairie provinces. The Saskatchewan Prevention Institute partnered with Dr. Mark Inman (Pediatric Endocrinologist, Saskatchewan Health Authority) to bring together current evidence and data relevant to Saskatchewan and increase the understanding of the strengths, gaps, and needs related to pediatric T2D within Saskatchewan.
The partnership resulted in the development of this background report, based on a literature review, needs assessment survey, and environmental scan, which will inform future work regarding pediatric T2D in Saskatchewan. The report will be used first to inform the development of relevant resources for education and training for healthcare providers, and second, to develop appropriate education for patients and families, within the Saskatchewan context.
