    Driving + Older Adult + Medications = An Accident Waiting to Happen?

    While driving autonomy plays a crucial role in supporting mobility, social connections, and access to healthcare, older adults face elevated risks on the road.

A recently published study was designed to determine what patient and clinician factors are associated with early implementation of SDOH screening in primary care.
