Development of a mental health driving screen: SPOT-DS

Development of a mental health driving screen: SPOT-DS


In mental health, assessing driving ability is complex, due to the fluctuating nature of mental illness, cognitive and psychosocial factors, as well as the impact that medications may have on driving abilities. A screening tool, the Saskatchewan Psychiatric Occupational Therapy Driving Screen (SPOT-DS), has been developed to score these factors and standardize the process, with the goal of achieving consistent and reliable driving recommendations. This webinar will review the research project that resulted in the development of the SPOT-DS, the screening tool itself, as well as practical examples and case studies.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will:

  1. Recognize driving as an instrumental activity of daily living.
  2. Become familiar with the SPOT-DS.
  3. Understand how to apply the SPOT-DS in practice.

This purchase is for the May 2, 2017 practice evidence webinar presentation web link archive. The archive purchase will be in the format of a web-based link that will be emailed to you separately in the following business days.
