Princeton Healthcare Community Consultation

princetonThe Rural Health Services Research Network of BC was honored to be invited to Princeton’s Healthcare Community Consultation, which took place on January 29, 2013.  This consultation brought together a diverse group of community members and stakeholders to discuss and identify the current healthcare challenges faced by Princeton and its surrounding area.  Over forty community members participated within small focus groups, sharing their personal experiences with the delivery of Princeton’s healthcare.  The consultation was spearheaded by Save Our Hospital Coalition (SOHC) and UBC-Okanagan’s Dr. Barb Pesut and her team of researchers.  Findings from this consultation will be used to inform potential areas of future research, and ultimately it is hoped that these findings will help lead to an improved model of healthcare delivery in Princeton and other rural communities.
