Event Date: Sep 22, 2022
Decision-making about driving and the transition to non-driving is a challenging and complex issue affecting 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. They will demonstrate how to use the Driving and Dementia Roadmap – a newly developed online educational resource to guide people with dementia, family/friend carers and healthcare/service providers through this process.
This integrated KTE webinar event is brought to you by brainXchange in partnership with the Alzheimer Society of Canada and the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration in Aging (CCNA).
