Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This study allowed researchers to understand how OTPs trained in the CarFit program utilize the CarFit 1:1 model in practice. Researchers collected 268 surveys. Those who used the 1:1 model reported that it was quick, easy, and helped them determine AE for driving. However, the model will likely be underutilized, as 86 respondents were extremely unlikely to conduct a 1:1 session in the next year due to barriers related to time, billing, and lack of training.
