Who we are

The Rural Evidence Review team is located in the Centre for Rural Health Research, Dept. of Family Practice, UBC and operated with the support of the Rural Coodination Centre of BC with additional funding from CIHR’s SPOR SUPPORT unit. The academic lead for the RER is Dr. Jude Kornelsen. The project coordinator and lead analyst is Kevin McCartney.

Our Plan

The new Rural Evidence Review project has two objectives:

  • Co-articulate health service research needs with rural communities and stakeholders;
  • Synthesize the international evidence on expressed priorities in policy-relevant and uptake-ready formats to make an impact

How can you help?

Tell Us Your Priorities: You can share your community’s healthcare priorities with us at any time by taking our short survey or contacting us (information below).

Contribute To The Discussion: By reviewing our work throughout the process, you can contribute to making evidence work for rural British Columbians.

Let Us Know What Works: Tell us if the evidence reviews have made a difference in your community’s health planning.

The success of the Rural Evidence Review rests on being able to use international research to pose viable, sustainable solutions to rural service issues here in BC. We need help to know which issues are most important and how each of our communities might benefit from evidence reviews on international best practices and solutions.
