Driving Me Crazy: The Impact of Impairment
The conference theme will explore medical and legal issues associated with managing and monitoring impairment in the context of driver licensing. The program also explores the proposition that the same factors which impact one’s ability to drive safely, also impact one’s ability to work effectively. The discussion will look to extend to the impact of a loss of insight in the context of professional practice.
Our guest speakers will consider:
- how the cognitive and functional capacity can and should be measured?
- what are the risks?
- what tests should be applied?
- what are the consequences when hard decisions are not made?
- how are situations managed where impairment impacts insight to such a degree that there is no perception of risk?
