We Need to Talk...Family Conversations with Older Drivers Facilitator Training (OT) on Tuesday, April 22, 2014 from 3-5 pm ET

This free online training is presented by AARP Driver Safety and the American Occupational Therapy Association

The We Need to Talk (WNTT) seminar provides tools and information to adult children, caregivers, and friends who want to discuss limiting or stopping driving with an older adult. The Facilitator leads a presentation and discussion with participants who attend the seminar.

The We Need to Talk seminar has been developed and produced by AARP based on information created jointly by The Hartford and the MIT AgeLab.

Occupational Therapists, Occupational Therapy Assistants, and students of occupational therapy are invited to join AARP Driver Safety and AOTA for WNTT Facilitator Training.  During this free distance learning event, you will learn how to: 

  • Acknowledge the meaning of driving and its influence on decisions about driving;
  • Create opportunities to talk about driving safety and transportation needs;
  • Make objective observations of driving skills;
  • Develop a plan for more successful and sensitive conversations about limiting or stopping driving;
  • Address transportation needs if driving is curtailed; and
  • Conduct WNTT Seminars

Elin Schold Davis, OTR/L, CDRS, is the Older Driver Initiative Project Coordinator for the American Occupational Therapy Association

Upon completion of the online training you will receive a letter from AARP Driver Safety for one (1) continuing education contact hour and a WNTT Facilitator Manual with DVD. You will be qualified to conduct WNTT Seminars.    

We encourage you to conduct a WNTT seminar during the 2014 AOTA Older Driver Safety Awareness Week; see http://www.aota.org/en/Conference-Events/Older-Driver-Safety-Awareness-Week.aspx for more info!
