Seminar Abstract:

How do you make the most impact when marketing your driver rehabilitation program? What can you do when physicians and vocational rehabilitation counselors are familiar with your program? Connecting with local OT practitioners in general practice, is an excellent way to identify the most appropriate referrals. You will be able to empower these practitioners with the confidence they need to play a role in driver rehab. With this presentation you will learn how to become the referral source when their generalist skills are exceeded as well as develop driver rehab as part of the typical rehab continuum of care.
