MEDICAL CONDITIONS AND MOTOR VEHICLE COLLISION INJURIES IN OLDER ADULTS

The objective of this study was to determine whether medical conditions that can impair sensory, cognitive, or motor function increase the risk of injury due to motor vehicle collision in older drivers. The study employed a matched case-control study design in which cases and controls were drawn from the membership of Group Health Cooperative of Puget Sound (GHC), a consumer-owned Health Maintenance Organization in Washington state with an enrollment of more than 380,000. Study subjects were older licensed drivers who received their medical care at GHC facilities located in King, Pierce, Snohomish, Thurston, or Kitsap counties.
