FUNCTIONING OF MEDICAL ADVISORY BOARDS AND PHYSICIAN REPORTING

The various screening and corrective processes of the driver licensing process as it addresses elderly drivers will not occur without a set of processes to support them. Changes in the way these support processes are carried on must precede improvements elsewhere. The support processes include: selection and training of licensing personnel; identification and referral of deficient drivers by enforcement personnel; physician reporting; and functioning of medical advisory boards. This paper examines the functioning of medical advisory boards, describing the problem giving rise to the process, the needs that the process must satisfy, and the actions that must be taken to meet those needs.
