Team 16 of the Canadian Consortium on Neurodegeneration and Aging (CCNA) have launched an invaluable online tool: Driving and Dementia Roadmap.
It is a website with videos, information, and worksheets to help individuals affected by dementia understand the importance of giving up driving. The website includes information for family, friends, and for health care providers, about how to approach the conversation about driving cessation.
More about the launch and development of the website was recently covered by CBC news.
- Dr. Gary Naglie and Dr. Mark Rapoport co-lead Team 16: Driving and Dementia
- Dr. Rapoport, a Team 16 co-lead, was our keynote presenter at the RaDAR Summit in 2016
- At the 2022 Summit, Team 16 research associate Elaine Stasiulis presented a poster about the development of the website
The RaDAR team, working in collaboration with Team 16, is adapting a driving cessation intervention for remote delivery. This is planned to be offered as part of the RRMCi suite of interventions offered remotely with the support of the specialist Rural and Remote Memory Clinic. This project is led by RaDAR investigator Dr. Megan O'Connell here at the University of Saskatchewan.
