Abstract:
Report identifies predictors of driving status, frequency, and safety following traumatic brain injury (TBI). Data collected from patients with TBI, their driving records, and their significant others was analyzed. The significant other's perceptions of the patient's fitness to drive were the strongest predictor of which patients resume driving and how often they drive. However, number of years since injury, disability at discharge, and current neuropsychologic functioning best predicted driving safety.
