PURPOSE: To describe the development of the School-Based Rural Case Management: A Model to Prevent and Reduce Risk in a primary health care academic nursing center practice in West Virginia. DATA SOURCES: Selected nursing and anthropological literature, regional health planning documents, and case examples. CONCLUSIONS: The model guides identification of health risks and the provision of health service, health education, and support to students, families, and communities. IMPLICATIONS FOR PRACTICE: As primary health care services are developed within rural schools, a school-based case management system assists matching appropriate services to the client, as well as supports program success.
