  1. Delayed access to health care : risk factors, reasons, and consequences.

    Article - En anglais

    Delays in care were reported by 16% of patients.

    The odds of reporting delays in care among patients who were black, poor, uninsured, or without a regular physician were 40% to 80% greater than those for other patients.

    Most patients who reported delays thought that their problem was not serious (64%). Cost was an important factor in delaying care for patients in lower socioeconomic positions.
