Connected to Community
From Crowsnest to High Level, Alberta communities welcomed our Regional Tour for the past 5 years. Council members and College staff reach out to local physicians, community leaders and citizens, making connections, learning about local healthcare concerns and exporing how we might work together on soulutions. In 2017, we visited Fort McMurray, Lac La Biche, St. Paul, Wainwright and Cold Lake.
Access to care continues to be a top issue across rural Alberta. In Wainwright the discussion turned to telemedicine as a possible remedy, an idea the College will explore with its partners as part of a new initiative studying the opportunities digital health technologies may offer in enhancing patient care.
