The National Blueprint for Injury Prevention
Occupational therapists take a leadership position regarding driving rehabilitation services because of their expertise in assessing and intervening on the interaction between the person, the environment and the occupation – in this case the occupation of driving.
The National Blueprint for Injury Prevention in Older Drivers outlines a vision and actions for promoting safe driving among older drivers in Canada. This blueprint is directed towards increasing the capacity of older adults to drive safely for as long as possible and maintain their engagement in the occupations which give meaning and purpose to their lives.
The National Blueprint for Injury Prevention in Drivers with Arthritis has been developed as a guiding document for teams interested in advancing research, training curricula, practices and policies to support drivers with arthritis. This blueprint is directed towards the health and wellness needs of the over 4.6 million Canadians diagnosed with arthritis who want to maintain their occupation of driving.
