Addressing Driving with Seniors: Evidence-based Clinical Decision Making

Presenter Nellemarie Hyde, O.T. Reg. (Ont.), CDRS

Occupational therapists in a variety of settings are frequently faced with responding to questions from physicians and families regarding a client’s driving ability, however OTs often feel they lack the resources, skills and knowledge to confidently address driving in their practice. Although on-road driving assessment is the gold standard in assessing driving, it is not always the best option for each individual. Using case examples, videos and worksheets this workshop will introduce evidence based screening tools, interview essentials, and clinical decision making process to guide the clinician in addressing medical fitness to drive.
