Abstract

The Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) Team in Driving in Older Persons (Candrive II) Research Program and the Ozcandrive study is a prospective, multicentre cohort study of older drivers age 70 and above where a total of 928 participants across 7 Canadian sites have been recruited. The Ozcandrive study (age 75 and older) which is linked with the Candrive study has recruited 295 participants in Australia and New Zealand. The objective of this study is to develop a driving decision rule that will help health professionals identify older drivers at risk for driving. The methodology for this 5 year study including assessment parameters and GPS data collection is described.
