Description : Appalachians have been characterized as a population with numerous disparities in health and limited access to medical services and infrastructures, leading to inaccurate generalizations that inhibit their healthcare progress. Appalachians face significant challenges in obtaining effective care, and the public lacks information about both their healthcare needs and about the resources communities have developed to meet those needs. In Appalachian Health and Well-Being, editors Robert L. Ludke and Phillip J. Obermiller bring together leading researchers and practitioners to provide a much-needed compilation of data- and research-driven perspectives, broadening our understanding of strategies to decrease the health inequalities affecting both rural and urban Appalachians. The contributors propose specific recommendations for necessary research, suggest practical solutions for health policy, and present best practices models for effective health intervention. This in-depth analysis offers new insights for students, health practitioners, and policy makers, promoting a greater understanding of the factors affecting Appalachian health and effective responses to those needs.

Description : Although health outcomes and other measures of well-being in the United States have vastly improved over recent decades, gains in Appalachia have been more modest than in other parts of the country. The common refrain is that this "lagging behind" is a result of Appalachia's persistent poverty and bleak labor-market outlook; yet economic explanations reveal an incomplete picture. Appalachian Health explores major challenges and opportunities for promoting the health and well-being of the people of Appalachia, a historically underserved population. It considers the intersections of health and social, political and economic factors to shed light on the trends affecting mortality and morbidity among the region's residents. This edited volume brings together high-profile authors from across academia, public health and government to offer perspectives on a wide range of topics including health behaviors, environmental justice, and pandemic preparedness. This volume also provides updated data on issues such as opioid abuse, "deaths of despair," and the social determinants of health. Using a multidisciplinary approach, Appalachian Health offers a timely and much-needed optimistic account of health status in Appalachia. By more closely studying Appalachia -- which is, in many ways, emblematic of rural regions across the United States -- this volume both better illuminates the complex determinants of health and offers a more systematic way to evaluate processes affecting well-being in rural places.

Description : "People in the Appalachian Mountains have an increased prevalence in poverty, low educational attainment, and low employment opportunities that are associated with poor health outcomes. Also, the Appalachian Mountain people suffer stigmas that have been propagated since the late 1890s. However, much of the research has been an etic focus and the emic focus is limited. A qualitative study of emic care explored the ways people in the Appalachian Mountains of Western North Carolina assured wellbeing. Leininger's Culture of Care model was used to guide the study and discover emic ways of wellbeing. The sample included 21 persons between the ages of 25 and 70 years old, persons who had lived in Western North Carolina (WNC) for 15 years of more and who had generational roots to Appalachia. Individual interviews were conducted in homes, at workplaces and in community settings after consent was obtained. Audiotapes were transcribed verbatim and analyzed through multiple levels to ensure trustworthiness, credibility and validity of findings. Emic themes were identified and included Communal Caring Relationships, Spirituality, Place Matters, Grandmothers Caring, and Etic Care. Specific actions and situations within each theme were reported. For example, the Place Matters theme included participants relating their ingestion of healthy diet of fresh fruits and vegetables from the garden or locally grown (the land). Enjoying the outdoors was related to physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. Spirituality was found to be a major component in a sense of wellbeing, and was described by participants as going to church, not going to church and the old ways. The use of wild crafted herbs and home remedies occurred by the participants in this study. Leininger's theory and model were useful in guiding the study, as were Spradley's ethnographic interview guidelines. The well-being discussed by participants provides the emic sense of wellbeing in the Appalachian culture. However, the model was not fully supported in terms of participants' discussion of challenges or barriers to wellbeing. Rather, the researcher was able to classify participant responses within the areas of physical, spiritual, and mental well-being. Perhaps this is another indication of how etic perspectives focus much of the perceived Appalachian and non-emic health. The findings provide an understanding of well-being and health that can guide future."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
