Abstract

The purpose of this qualitative study was to survey parents and caregivers of children with special health care needs (SHCN) to determine what they find important in the services they receive for their child with SHCN. A special focus was placed on if they live in a rural setting vs an urban setting and where they find the needed services. The results of the study indicate that parent and caregivers are willing to drive to an urban setting for services. They would rather keep their home community in place and drive up to an hour one way for the needed services.
