National Transportation Safety Board Recommendation

The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued the following recommendation for licensed professionals with prescriptive authority:

“Remember to routinely discuss with patients the effect a person’s diagnosed medical conditions or prescription medications may have on his or her ability to safely operate a vehicle in any mode of transportation" (NTSB, September 23, 2014).

In respect to best practices, also remember to document patient teaching regarding the above recommendation.
