As prescription drug cost and usage increase in America, problems with their affordability and access are also exacerbated. This is particularly prevalent in rural areas. Though the role of the community pharmacist is expanding at a rapid rate throughout the country, no one’s role is more critical than the role of the community pharmacist in the rural United States. As the trend of younger generations moving to urban areas intensifies, rural communities tend to have a higher senior population as time goes on. Additionally, these communities have patients with more chronic illnesses. Quite often, they require multiple medications, and limited access to transportation can make it difficult for rural residents to obtain them. People may need to make long drives to the nearest pharmacy, and pharmacy hours can be more limited in rural areas, making it doubly difficult to reach a community pharmacy. Rural residents may face geographic barriers to reaching a pharmacy, such as mountains or rivers, and roads often can be impassable due to weather or seasonal closure. Public transportation options are also more limited in rural America, which poses a significant hindrance to low-income seniors.
