Older Road Users: From Driving Cessation to Safe Transportation


Earlier research by the authors indicated that driving cessation appears to occur in stages, each of which has specific challenges and needs. Suggestions for a staged approach to resources to assist with the driving cessation process were made and the need for further investigation into the process and outcomes of driving cessation was identified. The current study used two phases, incorporating qualitative and quantitative methods, to investigate the process and outcomes of driving cessation and to develop resources that aimed to assist in the transition from driving cessation to safe transportation. The resources were evaluated using reference groups of health professionals and older people and pilot implementation. The study took place in 2003 and 2004 in metropolitan areas of Queensland.
