New Book on Best Practices & Evidence in Driving Simulation

UFTI affiliate Sherrilene Classen, Ph.D., professor and chair of the UF Department of Occupational Therapy, has edited a multi-author book published by the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) titled Driving Simulation for Assessment, Intervention, and Training: A Guide for Occupational Therapy and Health Care Professionals. According to the review in the April 2017 issue of  Occupational Therapy Journal of Research (OJTR), “there are limited resources dedicated to guiding health care professionals in the use of driving simulation tools…. [this book] establishes itself as a comprehensive resource to meet this need.”

Driving Simulation for Assessment, Intervention, and Training includes 29 co-authors and 25 chapters, divided into seven sections. The seven sections include: The Nature and the Scope of Driving Simulation; The Developer and Practitioner Relationship; Fidelity; Using Driving Simulators in a Clinical Setting; Driving Simulation for Teens, People With Physical Disabilities, Older Adults, and Those With Neurological Conditions; Vehicle Automation and Driving Simulation; and Transferability, Documentation, and Ethics. The book will be available in print in May 2017 and electronically soon thereafter.
