Screening for poverty and intervening in a primary care setting: an acceptability and feasibility study

This study aims to assess the acceptability and feasibility of integrating, within routine primary care, screening for poverty and an online tool that helps identify financial benefits. The results of the study contribute to the evidence-based literature on addressing the social determinants of health in clinical settings. The authors seek to understand whether this would be an efficient and acceptable method for addressing low income with patients in primary care.
