In close consultation with stakeholders, we are developing a national framework for standards in Traffic Medicine in Ireland, which includes:
developing and maintaining guidelines to help medical professionals assess a person’s medical fitness to drive
running an educational programme for health professionals, an Garda Síochána and other professionals
conducting and publishing high quality research in Traffic Medicine
promoting the public’s understanding of safe mobility by increasing their knowledge of how different health conditions can affect their driving
working to ensure that drivers who have treatable illnesses or some loss of function due to illness retain their independence and mobility.
