Module 7: Dissemination of Disability Access to Care Program Best Practices
Once a program to improve access to healthcare for rural residents with disabilities is underway, it is important to disseminate program results. Doing so is important for building relationships with potential program partners and funders, for increasing program visibility, for sharing best practices with other rural communities, and for demonstrating success in order to secure future funding.
There are numerous ways to disseminate programs improving access to healthcare to rural residents with disabilities. Often, the best starting place is to share program results with the program's board (if applicable) and project partners. However, it is also important to share program results more broadly with rural communities and stakeholders interested in access to care for people with disabilities.
