|State of Knowledge in Older Drivers
The objective of this project is to produce a report in which each chapter contains a comprehensive systematic literature review that summarizes, evaluates, and synthesizes research published since 1999 on topics related to older driver safety. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has previously published periodic �State of Knowledge� reports on a variety of behavioral safety topics. However, the current project represents the first on issues related to older drivers. The current project will apply systematic review procedures to comprehensively identify and evaluate the quality of studies on a selection of topics related to older driver safety. Each chapter of the Older Driver State of Knowledge report will describe the selected studies, aggregate findings across studies, and weigh study quality to provide a synthesis of the best evidence to date on the topic. The Older Driver State of Knowledge report is intended to be a reference document for both in-house use and use by other Federal agencies, State Highway Safety Offices, and other partners. The report will also be of use to officials involved in licensing decisions, health care practitioners who advise older patients about fitness-to-drive, and researchers within the field of aging and older driver safety.
