Healthcare providers involved in the care of older adults need office-based tools to screen for medical and functional issues which may affect driving safety, assess impairment and driving risk, intervene to optimize functional ability through treatment, refer appropriately for specialized care and driving rehabilitation, and offer support through resources and counseling for planning transition from driving if necessary. The Clinician’s Guide, published by the American Geriatrics Society in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, is designed to offer a wealth of resources to address these needs.
Come learn from a member of the Guide’s editorial board about what the Guide offers and how to use it! The session will include opportunities for questions and discussion.
