Lack of access to health care is a concern in many communities.
A group of representatives from health, social service, other community agencies and nursing education meet regularly to address issues in providing care to homeless, low-income, and uninsured persons in Spokane, Washington.
This group's efforts has been hampered by lack of clearly identified factors that adversely affect access to care.
One aspect of community analysis performed by this group used a collaborative community practice model.
Community diagnoses were determined from information collected from service providers.
Community health nursing faculty, as clinical specialists, can play a role in such a collaborative process.
