Strategies to Care for Patients in Rural Settings

UP Network Webinar | July 2018  GET SLIDES | PLAY RECORDING | READ TRANSCRIPT

More than 46 million Americans — or 15 percent of the United States’ population — live in rural areas as defined by the U.S. Census Bureau. In general, residents of rural areas tend to be older and sicker than their urban counterparts.

If your agency operates in a rural area, you likely encounter many unique challenges when serving patients. During this webinar, seasoned home health leaders will discuss successful intervention strategies to address several key barriers and provide an opportunity for sharing ideas.

LEARN HOW TO:

  • State three common rural health barriers.
  • Describe one intervention strategy for two different rural health barriers.
  • Apply one implementation strategy to overcome a rural health barrier.
