Indigenous Patient Perspective: Does virtual care improve access to health care?
Virtual care is when a patient receives direct care from their doctor or a health care provider via telephone, video, or even a text or email. Virtual care was not widely available to most British Columbians until the COVID-19 pandemic started. This research project seeks to understand whether virtual care improved access to health care for British Columbians. Indigenous patient perspectives in understanding this is crucial.
Indigenous patient partners will be given an opportunity to participate in several ways:
1. to complete a brief survey and submit it via email;
2. have a one on one interview with the researcher via telephone; or
3. participate in a patient advisory committee via telephone or video conference to discuss the research questions as a group. A summary of findings with be shared with Indigenous patient partners to verify accuracy.
