What is the RER project?

The Rural Evidence Review (RER) project is a four-year initiative, jointly funded by the Rural Coordination Centre of British Columbia and British Columbia’s Strategic Patient Oriented Research SUPPORT Unit. The goal of the project is to work in collaboration with rural community stakeholders to provide rural community-relevant evidence to inform the development of sustainable, evidence-based rural health services in British Columbia. The activities involved to achieve this goal include: (1) engaging rural communities to identify their rural health service research needs, (2) synthesizing the international evidence on the identified priorities, and (3) promoting uptake and use of the research findings into policy and planning discussions in British Columbia.

Who are we?

We are a team of researchers from the Centre for Rural Health Research in the Department of Family Practice at the University of British Columbia.
