PODCAST The Future of Rural and Northern Health Care in Canada Dr. James Rourke

The Future of Rural and Northern Health Care in Canada. In this 34 minute podcast Dr. James Rourke presents contrasting visions of a realities-based dystopian future and a possibilities-based utopian future. After a visualization exercise, he uses 16 Canadian examples to shine a light on 4 essential areas: Rural Mental Health, Maternity Care, Primary  Health Care, and Rural Emergencies and Transfers. He closes with 4 vital future directions: Rural Health Research, Rural Health Care Plans, Networks of Care, and the Quadruple Aim Rural HHR.
(Recorded session from the Canadian Conference on Rural & Northern Health Care March 10, 2021)
