HEAR – focus on homelessness

HEAR (Health Evidence Awareness Report). volume 4, issue 1. Focus on homelessness. March 2018.  HEAR homelessness

The purpose of HEAR is to provide specially selected information to patients, the public and to health professionals about key health topics. Each issue is the result of the collaborative effort of librarians from health organisations across Ireland.

Homelessness is an increasingly common phenomena in Irish society at present. Individuals who are homeless face a myriad of challenges in accessing health care services. Additionally, they tend to make more frequent use of emergency departments, to have mental or physical health problems and to have different priorities in terms of their health.

This issue of HEAR is available through the LENUS repository
