Event Date: Jun 05, 2018
Decision-making about driving and the transition to non-driving is a challenging and complex issue affecting all drivers with dementia and their families. Healthcare/service providers can play an important role in facilitating and supporting drivers and their families to make this transition.
In this webinar, Drs. Gary Naglie and Mark Rapoport who lead a team of CCNA researchers focused on dementia and driving, will discuss how healthcare/service providers can address the issue of driving in persons with dementia, including their current research on the Driving Cessation in Dementia Framework and Toolkit (DCD-FT), which they and their team have been developing to support this group.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium of Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
