REACH BC (reachbc.ca)is a new online platform that connects British Columbians to health research opportunities based on their health interests.
How does it work?
REACH BC is free and easy to use. Researchers sign up for REACH BC and add their active research projects (including clinical trials) to the public directory, then REACH BC’s matching algorithm will automatically find any volunteers in the REACH BC database that match the basic eligibility criteria. If a volunteer is interested in the opportunity and wants to connect with the research team, the REACH BC system will pull the volunteer’s contact information into a list for the researcher. REACH BC provides a faster and more efficient way for researchers to find and connect with participants or patient partners for their research projects.
