For a quarter of a century, the Alberta Rural Physician Action Plan (RPAP) has served as a collaborative partner and trusted advocate for rural Alberta communities trying to achieve greater access to health care. During this time, RPAP has worked with rural Albertans, and partners in government and healthcare, to successfully attract and retain physicians to practice in rural Alberta.

Following a review by the Ministry of Health, RPAP is expanding its mandate to provide support services beyond physicians to other health professions, for example, nurses and nurse practitioners, occupational and physical therapists, midwives, and paramedics.

While our scope is expanding, our efforts remain firmly focused in and for Rural Alberta!  

Before we go too far down the development path toward a renewed rural physician and health care professional services support program, we would love to hear from you. To ensure our involvement with rural Alberta communities is driven by local interests, we invite you take the time to answer one question for us:

Given our current context, “How could an organization like RPAP deliver greater value to rural Alberta in support of delivering better access to quality, sustainable health care?

I invite you to contact me personally at bernard.anderson@rpap.ab.ca with your thoughts about how RPAP can help your community achieve solutions to health workforce issues in rural and remote and communities. It is greatly appreciated if I could hear from you by the end of this month

Thank-you for your time and thank-you for your ideas.

Warmest Regards,

Bernard C. Anderson, MPA, MAdEd
