Module 4: Implementation Strategies for Rural Chronic Disease Management Programs

This module identifies key considerations for implementing chronic disease management programs in rural communities. Successful programs assess community needs in combination with key partners, cultivate buy-in among program staff and providers, and identify resources needed for implementation. Programs should be tailored to address the specific needs of the community.

For considerations for implementing specific rural chronic disease program models or approaches, see Module 2. More information that may be useful for implementing these programs can be found in the Social Determinants of Health Toolkit, Health Equity Toolkit, and Health Literacy Toolkit.

For a broad overview of rural program implementation, see Implementing a Rural Community Health Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
