Summary Through its thorough examination of America's underserved rural health delivery system. Rural Health Services: A Management Perspective brings an up-to-date mix of research and practice into a well-drawn analysis of growing issues for the 90s and beyond. Part One provides analysis of rural populations, the rural environment, and rural health policy, organization and delivery during the early 1990s. The second part addresses issues of particular concern in planning, developing, administering, and evaluating rural health services. Current practical policy and delivery issues concerning access to rural primary care services and services for the elderly and disabled are emphasized.
