Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Compelling Question (CQ)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

• Nearly 60 million Americans living in rural communities face additional barriers to receiving effective prevention and treatment services.
• Rural residents often enter care later in the course of their illness than their urban peers, enter care with more serious symptoms, and require more intensive and expensive treatment.
• The rural communities in the US are closely connected and can be leveraged to disseminate heart, lung, blood, and sleep relevant preventive and/or treatment options within those communities.
• Enhance understanding of community resilience factors, cultural, and individual factors that may enhance the provision and utilization of prevention and treatment services in these communities.
• Generate knowledge to improve the organization, efficiency, effectiveness, quality, and services for rural and frontier populations.
• Support movement of evidence-based effective health care and prevention and the public health knowledge base in rural communities in the US.
• Stimulate implementation science in rural and frontier communities
• High return on investment.

Is this idea a Compelling Question (CQ) or Critical Challenge (CC)? Compelling Question (CQ)

Details on the impact of addressing this CQ or CC

There are extreme disparities in the impact of COPD in rural areas, especially in rural Appalachia. These areas experience much larger prevalence rates and higher rates of hospitalization, readmissions and other health indicators that contribute to increased cost and decreased quality of life. These are also areas with the least ability to make improvements. Research that can inform both the causes of these disparities and identify proven methods for systematically confronting these issues has the potential to dramatically improve overall health status in rural America
