Handbook for the Assessment of Driving Capacity by Maria T. Schultheis

Book Description

This is a resource for professionals involved in determining the driving capacity of individuals with neurological involvement and or trauma. While much work has been completed in this new and growing field, this is the first attempt to bring together clinical work on assessing driving capacity for different clinical populations and conditions. Specific topics include, traumatic brain injury, stroke, dementia, normal aging, medications, retraining, interventions, medical conditions, legal issues, practical issues, assessment instruments, simulators, research and epidemiology. Each chapter will address clinically relevant issues specific to the clinical population.This comprehensive compilation of driving assessment of cognitively compromised populations is the first of its kind and Dr. Schultheis is regarded as a leader in the field. This is the first definitive handbook about driving assessment of cognitively impaired populations, a growing area of research. It addresses a myriad of clinical populations and conditions such as brain injured and elderly patients. It is written by nationally recognized leaders in their fields of expertise.
