A new policy paper is available from the RUPRI Center for Rural Health Policy Analysis:
Rural Pharmacy Closures: Implications for Rural Communities
Between May 1, 2006, and October 31, 2010, 119 retail community rural pharmacies that had been the only local source of pharmacy services closed. The RUPRI Center Policy Brief provides further detail on these rural pharmacy closures in which the pharmacist was the only clinical provider available in the community at the time the pharmacy closed, affecting 31 communities. Among them, 17% were located in remote rural areas.
