Healthcare Community Consultation Held January 29

January 31, 2013

On Tuesday, January 29th the Princeton Healthcare Community Consultation was held. Coordinated by Dr. Barbara Pesut of UBC Okanagan and her team of researchers, the consultation was attended by 40 participants representing various stakeholder groups that had been invited to attend.

Ed Staples, organizing committee chair, made opening comments and then introduced Dr. Pesut who described the consultation process that would be followed for the evening. The participants were then divided into focus groups who met in separate rooms to respond to the standardized questions presented by the facilitators. Recorders kept notes on flip charts and an audio recording was made. The participants then reassembled in the theatre to hear the recorders present the results. Following closing comments by Dr. Pesut, the participants then had the opportunity to “vote” for the issues that they felt were the most important outcomes of the consultation.

The data collected in this consultation will now be analyzed by Dr. Pesut and her team who will prepare a report that will be shared with our community. This report will be posted on this website.
