A Conversation on Community-Driven Solutions for Rural Health and Wellness 

On October 23 and 30, 2024, the Rural Coordination Centre of British Columbia (RCCbc) will host a virtual conversation with participation from people across British Columbia to discuss topics related to the health of rural people and communities. This virtual conversation will include presentations and time for discussion.

In advance of the October conversation, RCCbc will support existing tables and/or communities meeting to discuss priorities and opportunities. This support will include facilitation training (in-person) and funds to cover meeting space and food for participants.

 

A pre-meeting can be:

 

  • Multiple geographic communities coming together
  • Single geographic communities
  • Sector-based communities, such as rural paramedics or municipalities
  • An existing community table
  • Primary Care Network Community Advisory committee (funding could be used to bring a group together and/or support in forming)

 

For more information, contact Alice Muirhead, Director, Engagement and Outreach: [email protected]

Bringing a variety of perspectives together

Relationships are the cornerstone of our efforts to improve the health of rural people and communities.

 

To identify and spark connections between partners, we use a framework called the Partnership Pentagram Plus. It categorizes six sectors of partners—policymakers, health administrators, health professionals, academics, community members, and linked sectors (non-profit organizations and industries)—and gives everyone voice in addressing health gaps and overlaps.

 

The purpose of the October sessions is to inform the provincial Ministry of Health, along with other stakeholders in health delivery, of the priorities of rural people and communities in British Columbia.
