Under a cooperative agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the American Geriatrics Society (AGS) has just published the Clinician’s Guide to Assessing and Counseling Older Drivers, a free online guide that walks clinicians through key issues, opportunities, and challenges faced by older drivers and the healthcare professionals who care for them. As a companion to the Guide, the AGS is also offering live webinars to provide guidance to clinicians who treat older drivers.
The first webinar, Older Adult Driving Safety: An Overview will be held on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 from 12:00pm until 1:00pm Eastern Standard Time
This is a free event, but registration is required, please register here.
This webinar is presented by two members of the Editorial Board that developed the Guide, Alice Pomidor, MD, MPH and Elin Schold-Davis, OTR/L, CDRS. The webinar will cover the relevance of older adult driving to one’s individual clinical practice, and provide real-time examples of how to use evidence-based clinical screening tools to carry out an assessment and plan for older adult driver safety.
Participants can earn 1.0 AMA PRA Category 1 CME credits.
