Overcoming Rural Service Delivery Barriers: Three Examples in Integrated Care
Integration in rural primary care has well-delineated advantages, but there are barriers to developing a workforce in these areas. In this presentation, representatives from three novel rural service delivery programs will discuss specific strategies for overcoming these barriers. Attendees will learn how a rural Federally Qualified Health Center grew from 0 to 6 full-time psychologists in two years, how a graduate training program uses telehealth to provide services at rural primary care clinics, and how integrated clinics in the Frontier counties of Nebraska ensure a future workforce starting by targeting high school students.
