Step 1 Read the scenario.
While we would like to think that everyone has equal access to health care, as nurses it is important to consider the reality of how health care is distributed. Identification of distribution patterns contributes to an understanding of barriers to accessing health care that include geographic realities (urban vs. rural) and socio-economic inequities (insured vs. uninsured).
Step 2 Post a response to the discussion board.
In your post, address the following prompts:
- Discuss the meaning of distribution of health care within the health care delivery system.
- Discuss how the distribution of health care affects access to care.
