Programs and Services
Workshops during coronavirus outbreak
All Diabetes WA face-to-face workshops have been postponed until further notice.
Diabetes WA workshops:
Please note that in order to minimise risk of COVID-19 exposure, Diabetes WA has suspended programs that involve face-to-face contact in the community, including DESMOND and Smarts workshops, kids camps and Let’s Prevent group programs.
We will review this decision and recommence face-to-face programs when it is safe for the community and our staff. If you are interested in being notified when our programs come back online, you can leave your details using the form on this page.
You can access:
- Diabetes WA Helpline: free access to the latest diabetes management advice from a Credentialled Diabetes Educator on 1300 001 880, 8:30am – 4:30pm Monday to Friday.
- Diabetes WA Telehealth Service for all metro and regional areas: book a free consultation with our team of diabetes educators including dietitians, pharmacists and registered nurses. Diabetes education is delivered via videoconferencing on your computer or your mobile phone, from the comfort of your home or anywhere with suitable equipment.

Please follow up with a diabetes educator if you’re not sure what to do if you become sick (a sick day plan) or if you normally use insulin pumps or pen cartridges and don’t have a backup plan.
