Driving with Dementia or Mild Cognitive Impairment Consensus Guidelines for Clinicians: These guidelines are now available for use and have been produced to provide clinicians with an understanding of their legal and clinical responsibilities, as well as a framework on which to base appropriate management of those who drive with a diagnosis of dementia or mild cognitive impairment. The guidelines have been designed to provide assistance to clinicians rather than be prescriptive and can be adapted for local use. They are designed for use within clinical and community settings as a part of a comprehensive clinical assessment and formulation, rather than as a stand-alone assessment focussed solely on driving safety.  You can go directly to the guidelines by clicking here.

 

New Driving and Dementia and Driving with MCI pathways available: As part of the driving and dementia consensus guidelines process the clinical decision pathways for driving with dementia and driving with mild cognitive impairment have been updated to reflect the latest guidance.  These are available in the downloads section.

 

Research Article:  The research article that accompanies the Driving & Dementia pathway has now been published in the International Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, and is available via open access.
