Vulnerable populations

Vulnerable populations are groups and communities at a higher risk for poor health as a result of the barriers they experience to social, economic, political and environmental resources, as well as limitations due to illness or disability.

When speaking with a colleague in community care, you could say:

“Even though our wound care services are open to all seniors, we know there are vulnerable populations that are not using the program at all.  How can we address the barriers and ensure that they are getting the services they need?”
