Background: Driving fatalities are a leading cause of death among combat Veterans. To improve Veterans' fitness-to-drive abilities, evidence-based interventions must be implemented.
Objectives: Assess the feasibility of a one-day driving intervention for combat Veterans.
Methods: The study objectives were examined using feasibility guidelines that examine recruiting capability; data collection procedures and outcome measures; acceptability and suitability of the intervention; available resources and participant responses.
Results: COVID-19 and the study’s inability to convert to an online format (due to engagement with the driving simulator) hindered recruitment and study participation. Additional challenges for participants include fear of consequences from study participation, self-reflection of driving habits, workshop time burden, restrictive eligibility criteria and competing with another Veteran study.
Conclusions : Despite meeting criteria for feasibility success, COVID-19 posed difficulties the study was unable to overcome. As recruitment efforts evolve to an online format, targeted social media marketing may be considered.
