People living in rural areas often face difficulties when accessing health care. Due to the challenges with providing care in rural areas, various strategies have been proposed and implemented to help address health care service delivery in rural areas. The objective of this report is to identify rural health care service planning initiatives that are underway in Canada, Australia, or the UK; and to identify planning frameworks and models of care for providing health care in rural areas, with a focus on emergent, urgent, and community care.
