Identifying the Needs of Women Veterans in Rural Areas

Through a subcontract with Atlas Research, HRET participated in a project to:

  • Conduct a needs assessment of the Veteran Integrated Service Network 5
  • Identify the needs of women veterans in rural areas
  • Identify appropriate outcome measures to assess care quality for rural women veterans.

HRET staff developed interview guides for women veterans and for providers in VISN 5, coded the transcribed interviews, analyzed the data and identified themes and drafted a technical report.
