Clinical Assessments as Predictors of Primary On-Road Outcomes in Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s disease (PD), the most common neurodegenerative disorder of mid-to-late life in developed countries, can have an impact on fitness to drive. This article explores the clinical predictors that could be indicative of the pass, pass with recommendations, or fail-remediable categories for drivers with PD. A sample of participants with PD engaged in a series of cognitive tasks, and results show Trails B, Left Finger to Nose Test, and contrast sensitivity measures to be significant predictors for the pass, and pass with recommendations subgroups.
