Report

In the Eigth Annual Report of the Advisory Committee on Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Linkages (ACICBL), the committee writes that health care professional shortages, insufficient numbers of faculty members, demographic changes in the rural population, a strained delivery system, and emerging health care needs affecting quality of care combine to make unprecedented demands on the rural health care system. This report examines the supply, access, quality of care, and demographic issues that are impacting the rural health care delivery system, and provides specific recommendations identified by the Advisory Committee on Interdisciplinary, Community-Based Link ages (the Committee) to address these rural health concerns.
