Rural health services research and consumer perspectives

Health services research is concerned with the delivery of health care, the outcomes of the provision of care and consumer perspectives about access to health care services. The importance of consumer perspectives is demonstrated in projects such as the investigation of access to the needle syringe program and the use of advanced care planning.
