Interventions to Improve Access to Primary Care for People Who Are Homeless: A Systematic Review
Description of Resource:
People who are homeless encounter barriers to primary care despite having, on average, greater needs for health care than people who are not homeless. This systematic review evaluated the effectiveness of interventions to improve access to primary care for people who are homeless. The authors found moderate-quality evidence indicating that orientation to clinic services (either alone or combined with outreach) improves access to a primary care provider in adults who are homeless, without serious mental illness, and living in urban centers.
