A Systematic Literature Review And Structural Model For Older Driver Safety:
An Evidenced Based Approach
Presenter: Classen, Sherrilene
Using the Precede-Proceed Model of Health Promotion (PPMHP), and an etiological
systematic literature review, we examined the risk/protective factors of older
driver safety in the U.S. We described key features of this literature and developed
a structural model illustrating the prevalence of risk/protective factors in
the health domain (63%) and in other PPMHP domains (environment 20%; behavior
and lifestyle 10%; predisposing 1%; reinforcing 3%, enabling 2%; health education
2%). This model, a first step in synopsizing and quantifying these risk/protective
factors, informs rehabilitation professionals of their etiology and prevalence,
affords opportunities for multi-disciplinary research, and lays the foundation
for intervention planning.
