Prevention Activities of Patients in Rural BC



Open to Provincial Region


Prevention Activity Survey – Rural

Study Purpose
Preventive care is a necessity for all Canadians, but among rural populations completion rates are particularly low. We would like to learn more about your experiences regarding your preventative health care practices, such as cancer screening, immunizations, and chronic disease prevention. We plan to use this information to increase education and access to preventative care while also empowering patients to take charge of their own care.

Participants will be asked to complete a quick online survey on primary care provider attachment factors and preventive care service usage, completion, history, self-efficacy and preferences.

Here is the link to complete the survey.

Survey participants will have the opportunity to enter a draw for a chance to win a $50 gift certificate.

If you have questions, please contact the research coordinator Lindsay Burton at

Any individual over the age of 19, living in a rural BC community (population less than 20,000 people) is eligible to complete the survey.

Patient and family partners should not be a check box on research proposals! They need to be involved right from the start. I know patient and family partners are doing their part by providing their knowledge to researchers from their lived experience.  It’s a win-win for us to work together through PVN to make sure our input drives improvements.
