Transportation Help After Medical Services
Connections to healthcare are critical for people managing a serious illness or condition. Often patients are unable to drive themselves to and/or from medical appointments. Many people depend on family, friends and neighbors for rides, but what if these resources are not always available? Transportation is a key part of a treatment plan.
Easter Seals Project ACTION and the American Medical Association have a new pocket guide for patients considering transportation options before or after a medical procedure.
The Planning for Transportation After Medical Services pocket guide is available in English and Spanish. It provides information and tips about planning for transportation, the types of transportation available, considering how your health status affects the type of transportation you choose, and also includes a place for notes and phone numbers.
You can download or order print copies of the brochure from the American Medical Association webpage for free.
