Series: Health and Learning At a Glance
This fact sheet provides a quick summary of the consultations carried out by the Adult Working Group (AWG) of the Health and Learning Knowledge Centre to identify themes, gaps and needs for adults living in rural and remote areas of Canada. Participants included adults and service providers from Inverness, Nova Scotia; Seaforth, Ontario; and Fort Liard, Northwest Territories.
The fact sheet highlights the barriers faced by these individuals and provides some recommendations to better support their health. Some of these recommendations are directed to policy-makers while others are aimed at health-care and service providers.
