Training To Provide for Healthy Rural Aging.
Troisi, Joseph
Journal of Rural Health, v17 n4 p336-40 Fall 2001
Most of the world's rapidly expanding aging population is in rural areas of developing countries. Geriatric training programs should include social, economic, and psychological aspects of aging as well as medical, and should focus on enabling primary health caregivers to care for older people in their environments. Efforts to provide rural training in various countries are reviewed. (TD)
