The first half of the year was busy at the Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc)! We hosted two conferences, convened two multistakeholder meetings on physician resiliency and sharing rural innovation, contributed to the SRPC’s annual Rural and Remote Medical Course, and supported and attended events hosted by several of our collaborators. Here are some of the highlights:
RCCbc co-hosts the Rural Locum Forum in Nanaimo with Rural and Remote Division of Family Practice
Rural Innovators workshop – discovering how we can more effectively share and integrate innovation throughout the province
SRPC Rural and Remote Medical Course – Calgary – presenting to other rural physicians from across Canada, engaging practitioners and learners
BC Rural Health Conference – Prince George – annual CME/CPD event supported by the JSC and hosted by RCCbc (there are multiple photos in this post)
Interesting and useful #ruralhealth #MedEd sessions at #BC #Rural Health conference, ranging from telehealth, DermNet NZ, cultural safety, billing, and more. Patient stories about how physicians can improve practice during the addictions plenary were particularly moving and educational. #RHCinPG #ruralmedicine #MedEd #CME #CPD #CityofPG
