Hot Off the Presses

  1. The Office of Rural Health Policy (ORHP) is pleased to announce the release of the evidence-based  mental health toolkit.  As mental health and substance abuse continues to be a challenge in rural communities, this toolkit provides valuable and proven methods on ways to address the issue, make an impact in rural communities, be replicable and sustainable.This toolkit, located on the Rural Assistance Center, Community Health Gateway, is the 5th in a series of evidence-based toolkits released within the last two years.  The gateway, launched in 2012, was developed in response to the President’s Rural Healthcare Initiative, which identified evidence-based as a priority area for ORHP, and has allowed ORHP an opportunity to focus on demonstrating program outcomes.  The easy-to-use toolkits have been developed through extensive literature reviews, and in partnership with the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) and the Rural Assistance Center (RAC), and serve as a resource for rural communities looking to develop and implement a similar program.  Rural communities also avoid having to reinvent the wheel, as proven models have been studied and evaluated, and highlighted as replicable models on the Gateway.  ORHP encourages you to visit the Community Health Gateway http://www.raconline.org/communityhealth/ and explore the website to learn about the various tools and resources available.  For further questions, please contact: Nisha Patel, Director, Community-Based Division/ORHP, npatel@hrsa.gov.

January 17, 2014 

The Rural Women’s Health Study is a research project, based in Missouri, that aims to collect information from women and their health care providers regarding the strengths and challenges of finding help for domestic violence in a rural area. Women who live in rural parts of the state who receive their primary health care at either a 1) federally qualified health center or 2) rural health clinic are encouraged to contribute to this research, as are health care providers (doctors or nurses) who work at a rural health clinic or federally qualified health center. Participating in this study means sitting down with the researcher to answer a few questions at a location of your choosing, at a time that is convenient for you.
