Dr. Trina Larsen Soles is inviting rural and regional BC physicians, allied healthcare professionals and healthcare administrators to help identify key issues and provide feedback on a variety of proposed improvements for the BC patient transport system at a Rural Patient Transport workshop being held in Nanaimo on Friday, May 24 from 10 am to 2 pm. This pre-course is being offered as part of the BC Rural Health Conference.

The workshop will start with an interactive discussion that includes representatives from BC Emergency Health Services (BCEHS), Emergency Physician Online Support (EPOS), Patient Transfer Network (PTN) and the Rural Coordination Centre of BC (RCCbc). After this discussion, workshop participants will break into smaller groups to discuss proposed improvements to the transport system. Your practical input and feedback at this workshop can help shape rural transport initiatives that will make your practice better and support your community and patients.

Fee: $25 – includes a light lunch   |   Accredited for 3.0 Mainpro+ credits
