The Decision Aid for Older Drivers aims to engage older drivers in conversations early and inform and support them when making decisions about whether to continue driving, modify driving routines or retire from driving.
Older Drivers Resource
Aged Dementia Health Education and Research at the University of Wollongong, together with Transport for NSW have released a new resource aimed at helping older drivers make informed decisions when it comes to driving.
The decision aid is the culmination of a partnership between older drivers, health professionals, academics, and health professionals from a diverse range of disciplines. A rigorous iterative co-design approach involved academic review; piloting; consultation with expert advisory groups; and reiterative revision based on feedback.
The decision aid will help older drivers consider:
- How to continue driving safely for longer
- How to maintain lifestyles if required to drive less or retire from driving
- How to prepare for other ways to get around
