UBC researchers want input on Fort Nelson health services

The University of British Columbia is looking for public input on how to improve rural health services in Fort Nelson.

The school's Rural Evidence Review project is looking to connect with residents to help identify the pressing healthcare issues in the community, and their priorities for health services. The project is being led by a team of researchers from the Centre for Rural Health Research in UBC's Department of Family Practice.

"The RER aims to collaborate with rural citizens to provide robust, comprehensive and rural-relevant evidence to inform rural health service planning in British Columbia," officials say.

An anonymous survey has been launched in support of the project, and can be taken by clicking here. The survey takes 10 minutes or less to complete.

Those interested in taking part can also call project co-ordinator Christine Carthew, at christine.carthew@ubc.ca or 604-827-2193.
