Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

This descriptive, cross-sectional study aims to characterize current need and utilization of driver rehabilitation services among a nationally representative sample of community-dwelling older adults. Overall findings suggest that the need for driver rehabilitation services is unmet within this population. Results from this study provide empirical evidence to support future OT practice and policy recommendations to improve older adult community mobility and participation.
