Abstract

Despite the increasing popularity of Student-Run Clinics (SRCs) in Canada, there is little existing literature exploring their role within the Canadian healthcare system. Generalizing American literature to Canadian SRCs is inappropriate, given significant differences in healthcare delivery between the two countries. Medical students at the University of Calgary started a SRC serving Calgary's homeless population at the Calgary Drop-In and Rehabilitation Centre (CDIRC). This study explored stakeholders' desired role for a SRC within Calgary's primary healthcare system and potential barriers it may face.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 7. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 09 August 2013.
All research outputs
#867,171
of 6,236,034 outputs
Outputs from BMC Health Services Research
#405
of 2,562 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#17,437
of 100,407 outputs
Outputs of similar age from BMC Health Services Research
#13
of 88 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 6,236,034 research outputs across all sources so far. Compared to these this one has done well and is in the 86th percentile: it's in the top 25% of all research outputs ever tracked by Altmetric.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,562 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.7. This one has done well, scoring higher than 84% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 100,407 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has done well, scoring higher than 82% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 88 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has done well, scoring higher than 85% of its contemporaries.
