Ballarat Health (based in Australia) recently held a seminar on the interactions between driving and health. They produced several videos of the conference, uploading them onto their YouTube channel and making them available with a Creative Commons license enabling others to reuse the videos. A number of the videos of the seminar are shown below. They are aimed at an Australian medical audience but give numerous insights into research in this area as well as a broad range of general considerations including a discussion of the relationship of cognitive impairment to driving.
