TRB Webinar: Dialysis Transportation: The Intersection of Transportation and Healthcare

May 13 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

TRB will conduct a webinar on Monday, May 13, 2019, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM ET that features research from the Transit Cooperative Research Program (TCRP)’s Research Report 203: Dialysis Transportation: Intersection of Transportation and Healthcare.

This webinar will address challenges that public transportation agencies encounter regarding the rising demand of dialysis-related transportation and its associated costs. People who depend on public transportation for dialysis treatments often require more specialized services than general public transportation agencies are designed to provide. The presenters will provide an overview of the report findings, which came from surveys of transit agencies, dialysis facilities, and dialysis patients. They will also describe practices and strategies for transit agencies and the healthcare industry that may address the challenges in dialysis-related transportation.

This webinar is sponsored by the Transit Cooperative Research Program. There is no fee to attend this webinar; however, sign into MyTRB.org to view registration information.
