The Rural Health Professions Action Plan (RhPAP) is a collaborative partner and trusted advocate for rural Alberta communities trying to achieve greater access to health care. We work with rural health professionals and Alberta's rural communities to ensure every Albertan has access to timely and reliable health-care services close to home. Founded in 1991, our focus expanded in 2017 to include all rural health professionals.
Last year, RhPAP provided funding for rural RNs who signed up for both the Enhanced Surgical Skills and Endoscopy Skills Days. This year, RhPAP is pleased to provide $200 toward the 2019 Endoscopy Skills Event registration of rural Alberta RNs and LPNs. In order to be eligible, you must practice rurally in a community with a population of 15,000 or less and that community must be outside the Census Metropolitan Area boundaries of Calgary or Edmonton.
