Driver Screening – Increasing Occupational Therapy Competency

June 2, 2017 @ 8:00 am - June 3, 2017 @ 4:00 pm

This two-day interactive workshop is intended for occupational therapists who are seeking increased competence and confidence in screening medically at-risk drivers. Participants will gain an understanding of the occupational therapy role and responsibilities, and engage in discussion of the ethical dilemmas in driver screening. Current evidence of standardized screening tools and assessments will be reviewed, as well as the role of non-standardized assessments. Participants will have the opportunity to practice using screening tools, interpreting results and summarizing recommendations through the use of lab time, small group discussion and case studies. Participants will engage in a facilitated discussion and networking on the second afternoon regarding the integration of the knowledge into their setting as well as province-specific questions.

After taking part in this workshop, participants will:
1. Understand the role of occupational therapy in driver screening.
2. Be able to describe the skills required for driving.
3. Identify screening tools and assessments appropriate to different workplace settings.
4. Be aware of rehabilitation resources.
5. Be more confident in using screening tools, interpreting results and summarizing recommendations with medically at-risk drivers.
