Innovation & Development Commons Brown Bag Lunch – Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc): Rural Site Visits Project
January 23 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pmFree
The Innovation & Development Commons Brown Bag Lunch presentation series is a joint initiative between Northern Health and UNBC to promote health research in the North.
The Rural Site Visits project is a unique project to connect with over 200 rural communities across BC to listen to what health care partners feel is most important to the delivery of health care in their communities and what is working well and where the gaps are. We meet with the communities’ physicians/NPs, health administrators, municipal leaders and first responders, First Nations health leadership and academics. This has allowed the RCCbcto establish relationships on the ground, and feedback major themes that are being raised around the province to the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues (JSC). The project will help inform government rural health care policy and provide the JSC with information to modify existing programs or create new ones.
Want to learn how to strengthen relationships with rural communities? Or what community-driven innovations have been developed to address health care needs of rural communities across BC? This presentation will provide insight in engaging with all health care partners in rural communities and key findings of the successes and gaps in health care delivery.
