The Handbook of Rural Health is the first comprehensive multidisciplinary text on this important topic. Experts from the fields of medicine, public health, nursing, dentistry, epidemiology, anthropology, social work, and psychology examine issues relevant to rural populations. This in-depth coverage includes discussions of rural health and policy; methodological issues in conducting research; equity in access to care; and current infrastructures for the delivery of needed care. In addition, the health needs of specific rural populations are considered, including women, children, adolescents, Native Americans, and migrant workers. This much needed resource will be of value to physicians, nurses, epidemiologists, health service researchers, health educators, and others who work with rural populations.
