Comparison of customized versus mainstream primary care for homeless individuals: the primary care quality-homeless survey. Poster session presented at: Southern Regional Societies Annual Meeting; 2012 Feb 10; New Orleans, LA.
Homeless and recently homeless patients rate relationship to provider, cooperation and care for homeless specific needs more highly when primary care service delivery is tailored for the population
A homeless-specific primary care survey, in preliminary form, demonstrated internal and external validity
Tailored service delivery models for homeless primary care are not required in either the VA or in HRSA-funded Health Care for the Homeless clinics. However, they are associated with a superior primary care experience.
