The aim of this study was to develop and provide initial validation data for a self-awareness of on-road driving ability measure for individuals with brain injury.
Thirty-nine individuals with Traumatic Brain Injury completed an on-road driving assessment, the Self-Regulation Skills Interview (SRSI) and the newly developed Brain Injury Driving Self-Awareness Measure (BIDSAM).
BIDSAM self, clinician and discrepancy scales demonstrated high levels of internal consistency (α = 0.

To examine self-rated, clinician-rated, and self-awareness of on-road driving performance in individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) deemed fit and unfit to resume driving and healthy controls, and to explore their associations with demographic, injury, cognitive, and mood variables.
Participants included 37 individuals with moderate to severe TBI, and 49 healthy age, sex, and education-matched controls from Australia and Canada. Participants completed an on-road assessment, the Brain Injury Driving Self-Awareness Measure (BIDSAM), and a comprehensive neuropsychological assessment.

The degree to which individuals with traumatic brain injury (TBI) and their close others share a common understanding and experience of post-injury neuropsychological changes is currently unclear. The aim of this preliminary study was to longitudinally examine levels of agreement between self and close other reports of neuropsychological dysfunction following TBI and explore factors associated with these agreement levels.
Sixty-three people with TBI and their nominated close others independently completed the Structured Outcome Questionnaire at 1- and 5-years post-injury, reporting whether the person with TBI was experiencing any negative cognitive, behavioural or emotional changes compared to pre-injury.

To determine the extent and nature of driving self-regulation in drivers with Parkinson disease (PD) and factors associated with self-regulatory practices.
Although people with PD have consistently been shown to have driving impairments, few studies have examined self-regulatory driving practices and their relationship to driving performance.
We used a self-report driving questionnaire to examine driving self-regulation in 37 drivers with PD and 37 healthy age-matched controls.

previous studies raised the possibility that adverse health effects associated with elevated blood pressure (BP) begin at prehypertension levels (BP = 120-139/80-89 mmHg), yet few studies have examined the effects of prehypertension on cognitive functioning.
to examine the relationship between BP categories and cognitive functions in middle-aged and older women.
two hundred and forty-seven women from the Women's Healthy Ageing Project had their BP measured twice, at mean ages 50 and 60 years.

Research suggests that some older individuals may lack awareness of personal falls risk; however, there is no validated scale to measure self-awareness (SA) of falls risk in this population. Therefore, the objective of this study is to describe the development and psychometric evaluation of a new three part (intellectual, emergent, and anticipatory) SAFRM to be used in the older population undergoing inpatient rehabilitation. The SAFRM underwent a comprehensive scale development process.
