Examples of these resources are physicians, hospitals, clinics, rehabilitation centers, workshops, and educational programs. Most viable approaches to rural rehabilitation service delivery are limited by the assumption that the rehabilitation program is dependent upon the availability of traditional resources and employment outcome. The current trend in social service toward viewing people as total individuals with "tot l life" functioning and delivery systems from a total systemic view offers future clients hope for "total rehAbilitation" as an outcome. For example, some agencies presently attempt to overcome the resource and distance obstacles through a greater emphasis on inter-agency coordination, alternate staffing patterns, and greater utilization of client and non-traditional community resources than is generally found in urban service delivery. These emphases are discussed in more detail.
