Metabolic Disorders and Rural Health

Opportunity to Contribute! Submit Your Paper on Metabolic Disorders and Rural Health

The management of metabolic disorders – like most chronic illnesses – requires frequent interactions between the patient and healthcare providers. These are necessary to optimize outcomes and require the support of multiple resources such as pharmacies, medical laboratories as well as the ability to communicate with the patient and provider. Such infrastructure requires significant manpower and expenditure.

Providing chronic care for patients with metabolic disease in areas where distances are greater, and infrastructure is lacking – as occurs in rural as opposed to metropolitan areas – is even more challenging. This has led to disparities in outcomes and treatment of diabetes, dyslipidemia and hypertension, amongst others. Strategies for addressing these disparities by improving care of patients living in rural areas is urgently required. With this in mind, we would like to dedicate a special issue of Metabolic Syndrome and Related Disorders to commentaries, review articles, and original articles on metabolic disorders and rural health. Broad topics of interest that will be considered for peer review and publication include:

  • Impact of Health Care Policies on Care Access in Rural Areas
  • Telemedicine and Virtual Care
  • Novel Approaches to Deliver Medications and Improve Adherence
  • Broadband Access and Digital Disparities
  • Access to Nutritious Food
  • Community-level interventions for Primary and Secondary Prevention
  • Engagement of Rural Populations in Clinical Trials
  • Availability of Emergency Services in Rural Populations
  • Diabetes Outcomes

This special issue intends to highlight progress and problems in managing chronic metabolic disease in rural areas. Original studies, systematic reviews and commentaries will be considered for peer review and publication. Deadline for manuscript submission is October 1, 2022.
