In Switzerland over 200'000 people with diagnosed diabetes drive a car. Their physicians endorse many roles: usual medical care as well as informing properly about driving recommandations and handling the legal issues behing the licensing procedure. Ability to drive can be impaired in three ways: hypogylcemia, diabetes complications and hyperglycemia. Hypoglycemia is the main risk factor of vehicle accident for diabetic drivers and frequent while driving. However few accidents are reported due to hypoglycemia. Swiss medical guidelines about diabetes and driving mention the requested conditions, but practically how should we do? We sought to answear by creating a specific educationnal program focused on hypoglycemia management. Building patient knowledges through experiences is the main goal of the course diabetes and driving.
