Facing the Challenges of Rural Community Paramedicine

Community Paramedicine is a growing field that helps fill the gap in healthcare access. Each community has unique needs based on factors such as geography, age, transportation, poverty or environment. While these needs are unique, agencies often face the same challenges.

In the eBook, “Community Paramedicine and What it Means for Rural Communities,” Dr. Michael Wilcox examines the cases of Rice, Wadena and Scott Counties in Minnesota. Ranging in population from under 14,000 to more than 140,000, these sparsely-populated areas were addressing aging populations with increasing needs which are projected to outpace the growth of care facilities and local providers.

While an urban community may have different needs and goals, they will likely face the same challenges when implementing their community paramedicine programs. Download this free eBook for the full story.
