Presenter: Catherine Douglas, RN, Road Safety BC
RoadSafetyBC (RSBC) is the government authority responsible driver licencing decisions in BC. One component of RoadSafetyBC responsibilities is making licencing decisions for individuals who have medical conditions that may negatively impact driving outcomes. These decisions are made by staff in the Driver Medical Fitness Program who have given the legislated authority to make these decisions under the Motor Vehicle Act. This one hour session will be facilitated by a RN working in the capacity as a Nurse Case Manager at RSBC. Areas of discussion will include information about relevant resources available to health care professions, the role physicians play in the process of making medical fitness determinations, a look at the forms physicians need to be aware of (how, when, why to fill these out and submit them to RSBC), a review of a high level schematic about the flow of information to RSBC through to the point of decision, and an opportunity for open discussion.
