With Dr. Jude Kornelson, Associate Professor, Department of Family Practice, UBC, Co-Director, Centre for Rural Health Research
The need for rural patients to access specialist and procedural care outside of their home communities has increased in the past two decades, as health care delivery in most jurisdictions in Canada has gone through the process of regionalization, with health care planning and administration accountabilities distributed to varying types of regional authorities.This has led to the increased out of pocket costs to access health care, costs that are usually borne by patients and their families. This presentation will discuss retrospective survey data from rural BC to estimate and categorize rural patient travel costs across five domains: distance traveled and transportation costs, accommodation costs, co-traveler costs, lost wages, and patient stress. Findings will be considered ‘through a rural lens’, privileging citizen-patient experience and questions of proportionate equity in access to health care in Canada.
