A research effort of TRB that the Health and Transportation Subcommittee
has been following is now complete. It produced a Guidebook and
accompanying materials to help the communication process between health
and transportation professionals. I would hope that you take a moment
and check out the Guidebook and consider attending the webinar being put
on by the contractor.
Connecting Transportation and Health: A Guide to Communication and
Collaboration is designed as a resource for transportation professionals
to communicate and work in tandem with the public health sector through
the federal, state, regional, and local scale. This guidebook was
prepared for National Cooperative Highway Research Program (NCHRP)
25-25, Task 105. The Guidebook, a brochure that provides a brief
overview of the Guidebook, a PowerPoint presentation summarizing the
project, and a report detailing the development of the Guidebook are
available at http://bit.ly/TransportationHealthCommunicationsGuidebook.
Online Presentation. On April 30, 2019, 1:00-2:30 ET, an online
overview presentation will be held to present the guidebook and walk
through the resources it contains. This overview will be an opportunity
for transportation professionals to understand how the Guidebook works,
to learn about transportation and health communications in practice, and
to interact with presenters to ask questions germane to transportation
and public health communications and coordination. Join the presentation

Dear H&T friends,
I have been serving as a panel member for a TRCP project at the intersection of Health and Transportation, and would like to let you know about a TRB webinar on this research. Please see below for more information on the project and the webinar.
Please feel free to forward to anyone who may be interested in this research.
New Report on dialysis transportation. TRB's Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP) has released a pre-publication, of Research Report 203: Dialysis Transportation: Intersection of Transportation and Healthcare. It can be downloaded using this link: http://www.trb.org/Main/Blurbs/178786.aspx. The report responds to major concerns of public transportation agencies about the rising demand and costs to provide kidney dialysis trips and about experiences showing these trips require service more specialized than public transportation is designed to provide.
The report documents the complicated relationship of two different industries-public transportation and healthcare, each with its own perspective and requirements-to highlight problems, identify strategies addressing concerns, and suggest options that may be more appropriate for dialysis transportation. Accompanying the report are a supplemental report and Excel spreadsheet. The Supplemental Report<http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/tcrp/tcrp_rpt_203supplement.pdf> includes, along with a literature review and results from the project's surveys, an assessment of the comprehensive data provided by the U.S. Renal Data System. The community data tool is an Excel forecasting tool<http://onlinepubs.trb.org/onlinepubs/tcrp/tcrp_rpt_203.xlsm>.
Webinar. TRB is holding a webinar at 2:00 PM Eastern Time on May 13, 2019 on this research. You can register for the free webinar using this link: https://lnkd.in/eyGAe5z.
