This webinar is presented in partnership with the UHN Memory Clinic

Making the decision to stop driving and the transition to non-driving is challenging and complex, especially for drivers living with dementia and their care partners. In this webinar, Drs. Gary Naglie and Mark Rapoport, who lead a team of researchers focused on dementia and driving, will describe the development and evaluation of the Driving and Dementia Roadmap (DDR – www.drivinganddementia.ca) – a recently launched online educational resource. They will also demonstrate how to use the DDR, whether you are a person living with dementia, a care partner/friend or a healthcare/service provider supporting others through this process.
