Older, Wiser, Safer: the Challenge

1 September 2011

Older, Wiser, Safer: the Challenge of an Ageing Population 13 October 

PACTS Conference Thursday 13 October 2011, Royal Society of Medicine, One Wimpole Street, London

Over the next two decades, more older drivers will hold driving licences and will continue to exercise their use of the car. Statistically, older drivers and passengers are more at risk in collisions. Yet that risk stems from their frailty, not from their responsibility for causing crashes.

What advice is available to older drivers about car usage? Where does responsibility lie in terms of friends and family? Are there changes to the urban environment that would benefit older pedestrians and cyclists? How do we take forward the concept of the age-friendly city adopted by the World Health Organisation and much talked about in recent years?

This conference will bring together academics and advocates to look at the challenges of maintaining older people’s mobility safely in the years ahead.
