If you excel at community development and engagement work and would like the opportunity to support integration of rural healthcare providers into the community, enhance collaboration with community leaders, and influence local health-care in Rural Alberta then we should talk.
We are looking for an individual to work directly with rural community champions to develop effective and innovative ways to attract and retain health-care providers to rural Alberta. This particular position will also support rural indigenous communities in north-western Alberta.
Five (5) Rural Community Consultants (RCCs) currently live and work in various areas of rural Alberta, and report directly to the Director of Rural Community Development and Engagement. We are currently recruiting for one part-time (0.6 FTE) RCC position in the far northwest (High Level, La Crete, Fort Vermilion and Rainbow Lake region) of Alberta to be part of our RCC team. This will start as a pilot project, then reviewed after 6 months and adjusted as needed for longer term support. The focus of the RCCs is on community-based capacity building, working with local communities and other stakeholders to establish and support Rural Community Health Professions Attraction and Retention (A&R) Committees.
Other responsibilities include supporting RhPAP’s provincial Rural Education Outreach program, facilitating healthcare provider and family integration into communities, and liaising with rural community organizations and others with an interest in improving rural health care services. The role also supports RhPAP’s communications and marketing strategies, and collaborates on role-related content for RhPAP print and digital media.
