Health research in Canada has mostly focused on urban areas, often overlooking the unique issues faced by Canadians living in rural and remote areas. This volume provides the first comprensive overview of the state of rural health and health care in Canada, from coast to coast and to northern communities. Three themes are highlighted: rural places matter to health, rural places are unique, and rural places are dynamic. The contributors bring insights and methodologies from nursing, social work, geography, epidemiology, sociology, and community-based research to a full spectrum of topics: health literacy, rural health-care delivery and training, Aboriginal health, web-based services and their application, rural palliative care, and rural health research and policy. Taken together, these wide-ranging and multifaceted explorations of the dynamic relationship between health and place offer researchers, policy makers, students, and practitioners a valuable resource for understanding the special, ever-changing needs of rural communities.
