Journal Article

Abstract


  • The recent editorial by Yates and Ibrahim1 was a mature

    and balanced account of an increasingly important

    medical and social issue: what is the role of physicians vis

    a vis driving and dementia? In contradiction to Oliver’s

    juxtaposed entreaty to avoid the internet,2 Ibrahim’s

    impressive online educational video3 addresses the

    sensitive topic of driving cessation with aplomb. Similarly

    thoughtful approaches to this vexed topic may be found

    elsewhere.4-6

    There are three points, we wish to add.
