Rural Coordination Centre of BC
The Rural Coordination Centre of BC, in conjunction with the Rural Education Action Plan, improves the health of rural people and communities in British Columbia by:
- supporting physician and healthcare provider health and practice;
- growing relationships through collaboration and partnerships;
- augmenting feedback loops; and
- enhancing innovation.
These goals are achieved through communication, facilitation, collaboration, evaluation, and sharing of best practices.
The Rural Coordination Centre of BC supports and develops provincial initiatives by engaging and coordinating with rural healthcare providers to facilitate the development of local and/or regional solutions, frameworks, and networks. Though rurally focused, it sees value in applying rural solutions to benefit all health professionals facing similar challenges.
