The nursing community is continually challenged with expanding the empirical knowledge base that informs rural nursing practice. This 26th volume of the prestigious Annual Review of Nursing Research --Focus on Rural Health--addresses this challenge.

ontributors have developed creative and effective strategies to identify relevant research and present them in the context of the rural delivery system.

Topics include:
* Nursing Research to Meet Health Care Needs of Rural Populations
* Improving Systems, Quality of Care & Patient Safety
* Improving Cultural Relevance of Rural Nursing Research: Methodological Issues, Constraints, and Opportunities
* Also included: Contents of Previous 10 Volumes

The contributors, all noted nurse scientists, discuss the key problems they deal with on a daily basis, utilizing recent rural and general health policy reports. This approach allows readers to learn new techniques and strategies for rural nursing practice that are firmly grounded in the evidence. While the primary examples are drawn from American contexts, a special chapter on global perspectives highlights analogous problems and issues that rural nursing research raises across countries, particularly the availability of resources.
