Hi all, this documentary may be of interest to some of you. There are a few showings in various cities coming up, but it is also available for educational purposes. It is US-based but I think brings up a lot of issues we seen in different settings worldwide and might be good for training and discussion in your various organizations. I have heard great feedback from people who have seen it:
Here is the synopsis: Set against the backdrop of the physician shortage and opioid epidemic in rural America, The Providers follows three healthcare providers in northern New Mexico. They work at El Centro, a group of safety-net clinics that offer care to all who walk through the doors, regardless of ability to pay. Amidst personal struggles that reflect those of their patients, the journeys of the providers unfold as they work to reach rural Americans who would otherwise be left out of the healthcare system. With intimate access, the documentary shows the transformative power of providers’ relationships with marginalized patients.Reply
