Keith McWilliams, OTR/L, MOT, CBIS, DRS presented “Driving and Self-Efficacy for Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injuries” at the Texas Occupational Therapy Association annual conference on November 6-7, 2015 in Richardson, Texas.
The focus of the presentation was the relationship between self-efficacy and the instrumental activity of daily living (IADL) of driving. Occupational Therapists in Australia developed The Adelaide Driving Self-Efficacy Scale (ADSES) for patients who have experienced a stroke.
The intent of the ADSES is to be a predictor of driver evaluation outcomes based upon patient confidence related to driving situations. Further information on the study and the results will be presented at the American Occupational Therapy Association annual conference in Chicago, Illinois on April 7-10, 2016.
