The Canadian Centre for Rural and Agricultural Health is an embodiment of research, service, and outreach to support improved health outcomes for rural and agricultural people in Saskatchewan, across Canada, and around the world.
The Centre has a number of flagship programs which combine clinical work with research, outreach, and knowledge mobilization. Two examples are the Agricultural Health and Safety Network, which focuses on the health and safety of rural agricultural populations, and the Rural Dementia Action Research (RaDAR) program, which focuses on improving care from diagnosis to end of life, for people with dementia who live in rural and remote areas.
The Centre’s world-leading researchers work on breakthroughs in areas such as musculoskeletal health and ergonomics, access to care, exposures in the rural environment, advances and techniques in industrial and occupational hygiene, right down to omics science which uses modern analytical laboratory techniques to investigate major issues.
