The NHCTP has identified and produced a number of resources that can assist NHs to establish and deliver “good practice” community transport programs. It is envisaged that the NH Community Transport Toolbox will be a “living resource” i.e. it will be regularly updated as resources are reviewed or developed across the NH sector.
The NH Community Transport Project – Phase 1.
In early 2016, the RANCH worked with staff from the Loddon Mallee Integrated Cancer Services to develop a successful funding submission for a project focusing on the issue of NH involvement in providing community transport across the Loddon and Mallee regions.
This work undertaken by the NH Community Transport Project (NHCTP) included:
a gap analysis of community transport at NHs in the Loddon Mallee Region.
a review of five successful NH transport programs to identify the factors that make them successful.
the development of a toolkit to assist other NHs to establish or enhance their transport programs
funding ($5000) for three NHs in the region to either establish or enhance transport programs for cancer and other patients using the toolkit.
The NHCTP –Phase 2 – Towards Sustainable Models Project (TSMP)
The second stage of the NH Community Transport Project (NHCTP) involved a collaborative, action research approach to the development of 4 NH community transport models that have the potential for sustainability.
