Anticipated research will involve location/allocation modeling to evaluate efficiency and accessibility to current primary/secondary health care facilities in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. Particular emphasis is paid to rural localities, who are susceptible to changing demographics and population decline. An analysis of functional regions and the identification of service needs will possibly lead to potential recommendations for evolution in facility utilization.
Geographic Information Sciences, multi-criteria evaluation, spatial network analysis, and location-allocation modeling.
