Driving with ALS
Driving is an important activity for many people, it is often associated with a sense of independence. It is a complex task that requires adequate physical, cognitive/perceptual and functional abilities.
ALS is an illness that can affect these abilities, therefore having an impact on one’s ability to drive safely. The ALS multi-disciplinary team at the Montreal Neurological Hospital/Institute implemented a driving screening process with the objective of promoting and prolonging driving safety in patients with ALS. Our project, known as the ALS Steering Wheel, will be presented in this webinar.
Here are some of the main topics that will be discussed during the presentation:
- CMA Driver’s Guide (9th edition);
- SAAQ Guidelines;
- ALS Steering Wheel project.
