Abstract

Participants are invited to join the audience as part of a live community radio talk show on rural health. The host will interview people involved with a recent Rural Secretariat research project which gathered citizen’s views on barriers and solutions to accessing health care in rural Newfoundland.The show will highlight the main findings and learning’s in an engaging and relaxed setting complete with music, poetry, food and call-in – everything essential for a memorable community radio broadcast. Participants will hear about challenges and successes with the project as well as having an opportunity to contribute their own thoughts and ideas for next steps with the project. The session will be broadcast live though a local community radio station and also webcast – contributing to the overall mobilization of the project findings in the region and beyond. The research being highlighted focuses on the Corner Brook-Rocky Harbour and Stephenville-Port aux Basques Rural Secretariat Regions. Key partners included the Rural Secretariat Regional Councils, the Health Research Unit (MUN), Regional Health Authorities, the Department of Health and Community Services. The research included an extensive survey in the above mentioned regions, a literature scan of potential solutions/ opportunities as well as a series of kitchen table discussions hosted across the regions. The aim of the project is to provide research which can inform policy recommendations made by the Rural Secretariat Regional Council to the Provincial Government.
