This three year project aims to evaluate the design and implementation of Community Learning Centres (CLC) in four communities located in the traditional territory of the Ktunaxa Nation in Southeastern BC. A CLC is an innovative model of delivering healthcare and health information based firmly on the idea of community engagement. The aim of the project is to develop the KCLCs to contain community-specific health information, evaluate how the KCLCs are implemented in a community, understand how community members engage with the KCLCs, and see how effective KCLCs are in promoting community health in the First Nations context. The Ktunaxa Community Learning Centres (KCLC) initiative aims to create centres where residents and health professionals can access health resources through the use of information and communication technologies (ICT). A KCLC is a gathering space for the community, housing Internet-linked computers accessible to all community members free of charge. It is a resource for residents and health professionals to access web-based resources relevant to community defined health needs and priorities.
