Book Description: Research results indicate that older adults have a higher rate of fatality and injury in motor vehicle crashes than any other age group except for teenagers. With the aging of the American population, concern arises regarding potential increases in rates of crash involvement and injury. This new book examines the association of the impairing effects of multiple medication use, drug/drug interactions and drug/disease interactions on motor vehicle crashes in individuals age fifty years and greater.
