Investigating ways to improve the delivery of health care services to rural residents through health planning and rural development activities was the purpose of the 1980 conference. Four topics addressed by the participants were chosen because of their importance to the rural health systems of western communities and because coordination of efforts in these areas would be beneficial. Topics included: the role of the rural hospital; health personnel in rural areas; rural health education; and special impacts affecting care. Research or position papers were presented on each topic, followed by group discussion and descriptions of instances where health planners and rural development specialists have been working together. Participants then formulated recommendations which were categorized according to policy development, coordination, and research activities. These proceedings present a brief summary of each of the four topic sessions and the recommendations developed at the conference. Appended is a list of conference participants. (AH)
