Module 4: Implementation Considerations for Rural Programs Addressing Social Determinants of Health
This module presents cross-cutting implementation considerations to guide rural organizations as they work to address social determinants of health (SDOH) in their communities. Evidence-based and promising models to address SDOH should be tailored to fit the community. Programs that work well in one rural community may not have the same success in another community.
For more specific considerations for implementing particular program models or approaches, see Program Models. For an overview of possible implementation challenges, including special population considerations, see Introduction to Social Determinants of Health.
For a general overview of rural program implementation, see Implementing a Rural Community Health Program in the Rural Community Health Toolkit.
