Priority Recommendations For Saskatchewan Communities

In June 2004, the Prairie Women's Health Centre of Excellence (PWHCE) and the Centres of Excellence for Women's Health released the report Rural, Remote and Northern Women's Health: Research and Policy Directions. This was a comprehensive, national project on the health concerns of women who live in rural, remote and northern Canada. As requested by the community women involved in the project, a plain language community kit was developed shortly afterwards. PWHCE also committed to providing other follow-up to the research report and its recommendations. This document is a record of the first community workshop.

In September 2004 PWHCE began working with rural women to develop a process to carry forward the Report's recommendations. The Rural Women's Health Workshop was held from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm on November 17, 2004 at the Christ Lutheran Church in Young, Saskatchewan. The purpose of the workshop was to offer women the opportunity to become familiar with the national Report's recommendations and determine follow-up action for Saskatchewan. Eighteen women participated in the event. Some of the women had participated in focus groups held in Young and in Yorkton with rural and farm women conducted as part of the research for the Rural, Remote and Northern Women's Health Report. New participants included other rural women, Métis women and Francophone women.
