manufactured home decommissioning
Manufactured Home Decommissioning

Boyd Wilson, BPA asked to discuss this:

  • This is a social engineering project.
    • It will take a variety of funding sources to accomplish because there is probably not one funding source that can support it all.
  • Suggest that we get a Master’s in Social Work (MSW) student to look into the funding of this program.
    • There are about five accredited MSW programs in the Region, with Walla Walla University being one of the five.
    • Boyd is willing to see if they have an MSW student that is interested in researching this topic.

  • Subcommittee selected a scoping study of rural health-care facilities as top priority for 2014.
    • Focus on small health clinics, not hospitals or large health facilities
    • Focus on human health clinics
      • Some research into differences and similarities between human and animal clinics.
    • Subcommittee may want to expand scope of the effort to include more sites and/or veterinary clinics.
  • We’ll likely have a special Subcommittee meeting to discuss this topic with NEEA, Avista, and other organizations that have been active on this topic (~ end of January).
  • Do you know of any audit data of rural health-care facilities that could inform this research?
  • Announcements?
  • Feedback on S/R Subcommittee 2013?
  • Interests for Subcommittee in 2014 beyond health care measure scoping?
