Hi all! I'm writing a paper re: Barriers/Delivery of Healthcare to the Homeless. I'm getting kind of frustrated because I'd really like to interview someone in the field and no one is returning my calls!
I searched the archives here and didn't find anything relating to what I am looking for. I did come across that very interesting debate re: healthcare being a right, etc.
Anybody out there work or volunteer in this area? Some of the questions I have are:
As a healthcare provider, what you do find to be the most difficult aspect in dealing with the homeless?
Does your facility have certain requirements that the indivual must meet in order to receive routine care? (ie. drug free, etc.)
What types of barriers do your clients face?
What would you like to see happen with the system in the future?
I would GREATLY appreciate any input!
