Abstract

Housing-insecurity and homelessness have a direct impact on individual health, and are well established causes of premature morbidity and mortality (6). Screening for housing-insecurity leads to earlier identification, and more extensive engagement of services, which can help to mitigate the individual and public health ramifications of these social determinants of health (8). The aim of this project was to improve the screening process for housing-insecurity within an rural primary care setting.
