AbstractThis study was a description of the use of clinic services by women aged 60 and older in four rural Arizona communities. A secondary data analysis was conducted on data collected by staff during clinic visits. For the entire sample, the most common types of visits/services were adult health, chronic disease, case management, and assessment/ screening. Anglo women were more likely to have visited clinics for immunizations and Mexican-American women for chronic diseases, skilled care, and education on prevention, use of resources, and nutrition/diet. More 60-69 year old than 70 and older women's visits were for immunizations, potential infection, nutrition/diet information, and chronic diseases. Women 70 years of age and older were seen more often for noncompliance issues, preventive health care, adult health, and case management.
