Medical Fitness to Drive; the law, the science, and the limitations, with reference to the SASOM Driver Fitness Guidelines.

Having a sound understanding of the medical requirements for driving is essential for any medical or allied medical practitioner when they are asked the question by their patients if they are allowed to drive.  This workshop will unravel the mysteries around the legal requirements and guidelines of putting patients back on the road and it will provide the practitioner with tools to minimize the risks of making these decisions.
