COVID-19 presented challenges for every community, and Kentucky’s rural areas were no different. Kentucky’s rural regions have had significantly lower percentages of vaccination rates than urban areas.(1) Many factors contribute to these numbers including a tremendous lack of access to care, misinformation and vaccine hesitancy.
This course is designed to discuss and consider the lessons learned during the pandemic and how we can improve care for rural patients.
Statement of Need:
Physicians in Kentucky-both in urban and rural areas treat patient populations that may be affected by social determinants of health. Physicians need to know how to discuss challenges with patients and provide resources or information to patients to increase positive health outcomes.
At the end of this module physicians will be able to:
Describe options for alternative treatment to address access to care issues.
Describe effective communication techniques for patient engagement.
Discuss challenges in addressing social determinants of health.
