Giving up driving in later life: The social context
Speaker: Professor Charles Musselwhite, Psychology Department, Aberystwyth University
Charles Musselwhite is Professor of Psychology at Aberystwyth University with research interests in applying psychology to support us to stay mobile in later life. He is the Editor in Chief of Elsevier’s Journal of Transport & Health and co-Directs two research programmes, The Transport and Health Integrated Research Network and The Centre for Ageing and Dementia Research. He also Co-Directs the university’s Centre for Transport and Mobility.
He has worked on over 40 research projects as Principal or Co-Investigator, bringing in almost £25m. He has written almost 50 peer reviewed journal publications, 25 book chapters and 5 books.
His presentation will examine the social context of giving-up driving in later life, how difficult that decision is and why, touching on how we improve older driver safety and how we help people give-up driving successfully.
Charles will also look at the impact of aging on those who drive for work, and what employers need to know about managing driver risk when those staff are increasingly working, and driving for work, until later in life.
