Objectives:The present study was designed to assess the several dimensions of psychomotor performance for evaluation of driving competence in patients with schizophrenia.
Methods:We evaluated psychomotor performance of schizophrenic patients by using the cognitive perceptual assessment for driving (CPAD) which was developed for assessing the driving competence of people with acquired brain injury. Forty-five patients with schizophrenia participated in this study and the results of CPAD were compared with those of 58 control subjects.
Results:Psychomotor performances were remarkably decreased in patients with schizophrenia compared with healthy controls in terms of CPAD variables. Among patients, 44.4% passed the CPAD to be regarded as competent to drive, whereas all the controls passed the test.
Conclusion:These results suggest that psychiatrists need to be careful in evaluating the driving competence of schizophrenic patients. Further, the CPAD can be a useful tool for assessing driving-related psychomotor performances in patients with schizophrenia. (Korean J Schizophr Res 2010;13:89-96
