Rapid Review of Rural Health Research Resources for the Five Leading Causes of Death
The Rapid Review of Rural Health Research and Resources was prepared in order to accompany the December 12-13, 2017 convening, What Works for Rural: From Research to Reality, a workshop supported in partnership by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Federal Office of Rural Health Policy (HRSA/FORHP), the National Network of Public Health Institutes, and the Georgia Health Policy Center (GHPC). The Rapid Review is a compilation of research and resources on the five leading causes of death in rural America gathered from online resources and limited to the years 2013 through 2017. The document is not intended to be a scientific statement of the evidence or to represent the state of the evidence. It is a work product for workshop attendees that represents a snapshot of research and resources for a specific point in time.
