The Western Diabetes Institute (WDI) was founded in 2009 as an integrated practice unit, or IPU, organized around people living with diabetes and related conditions, complications, and circumstances — sometimes referred to as “multimorbidity”. WDI consists of a dedicated team of experts representing a spectrum of disparate disciplines all aligned to address the complex medical and social needs of each patient.
As an academic health center, the Western Diabetes Institute trains WesternU students in complex chronic care delivery by providing ‘real-world’ opportunities for longitudinal, experiential learning. Students are paired with a patient being evaluated in the IPU’s one-stop shop and works closely with the care coordinators/promotoras de salud. This unique student-patient-coordinator pairing is designed to promote a partnership that will lead to better understanding of the challenges and complexities of living with, and caring for, diabetes and multimorbidity.
