|Updates from RHSRNbc Team Award Winners Â
In July of this year, the Rural Health Services Research Network of BC awardedÂ $5000 toÂ Dr. Barbara Pesut, so that she could assemble a team to work on a rural health services research project. Â 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. Â Additionally, they are surveying and compiling local resources available to those living with life-limiting chronic illness.Â This information, along with Interior Health statistics on Princeton, BC, will help inform team decisions around pilot projects. Â This team is comprised of UBC researchers, Princeton community members, and Princeton healthcare providers, and will meet next via teleconference in December.
