|Updates from RHSRNbc Team Award Winners
In July of this year, the Rural Health Services Research Network of BC awarded $5000 to Dr. Barbara Pesut, so that she could assemble a team to work on a rural health services research project. Now, almost 6 months into the project, the team has provided RHSRNbc with an update:
- Dr. Pesut’s team is currently conducting a literature search on rural health care models and resources designed to support persons and families living with life-limiting chronic illness. Additionally, they are surveying and compiling local resources available to those living with life-limiting chronic illness. This information, along with Interior Health statistics on Princeton, BC, will help inform team decisions around pilot projects. This team is comprised of UBC researchers, Princeton community members, and Princeton healthcare providers, and will meet next via teleconference in December.
