PhD study: risk determinations drugs and medicines vary
On Thursday 2 May, SWOV researcher Sjoerd Houwing was awarded his PhD for his thesis entitled Estimating the risk of driving under the influence of psychoactive substances. Houwing compared the different methods which are used to determine the risk caused by the use of psychoactive substances (drugs and medicines) in traffic. He concluded that the findings of the methods which were applied differ considerably due to methodological imperfections in the practical part of the study.
