This report aims to describe the home and community care interventions being delivered to rural populations, report their associated outcomes, and to highlight evidence-informed “best practices” for delivering care to rural communities. This rapid review also looked to Sweden, Intermountain healthcare in the United States, and Australia to identify any unique approaches or lessons to be learned for implementing and delivering home and community support services to rural and remote populations.
