Assessing post-stroke driving safety is a multifactorial issue. Therefore, this thesis developed a post-stroke driver profile, investigating the appropriateness of assessments; including on-road observations, simulated driving and cognitive assessments in licensed post-stroke drivers. It also assessed the influence of post-stroke cognition on driving performance, task demand, and investigated the compensation strategies used by post-stroke licensees. The results are useful for practitioners and policy makers, and in driving assessments, rehabilitation programmes and for future research.

The cognitive and socio-demographic influences on driving performance and driving cessation in post-stroke driversBlane, Alison; Falkmer, Torbjorn; Lee, M.; Parsons, Richard; Lee, Hoe (2015)Background: Driving is a complex and multifaceted occupation requiring highly integrated cognitive and perceptual functions can be negatively affected following a stroke. The decision to continue or cease driving after a ...
Investigating cognitive ability and self-reported driving performance of post-stroke adults in a driving simulatorBlane, Alison; Falkmer, Torbjorn; Lee, Hoe; Dukic Willstrand, T. (2018)Background: Safe driving is a complex activity that requires calibration. This means the driver can accurately assess the level of task demand required for task completion and can accurately evaluate their driving capability. ...
Cognitive ability as a predictor of task demand and self-rated driving performance in post-stroke drivers - Implications for self-regulationBlane, A.; Lee, Hoe; Falkmer, Torbjorn; Dukic Willstrand, T. (2018)Driving is a highly complex task requiring multiple cognitive processes that can be adversely affected post-stroke. It is unclear how much ability post-stroke adults have to self-evaluate their driving performance. ...
