Supporting healthcare providers address driving
Most healthcare providers have some level of responsibility when it comes to their patient’s ability to drive. For some there are mandatory requirements and for others it’s best practice to support patient and public safety. It’s an important role, but one that many healthcare providers feel unprepared for.
But even if you don’t have an obligation, healthcare professionals should be aware of the conditions or signs that potentially put their patients at risk for unsafe driving. Basically any medical condition or injury that affects cognitive, motor or sensory functional abilities or alertness can impact driving, including:
- Neurological degenerative disease:
- Alzheimer’s Disease or other dementias
- Brain injury
- Anxiety and stress-related disorders
