Staplin, L., Classen, S., Dickerson, A., Schold Davis, E., et al. (2016). A taxonomy and terms for stakeholders in senior mobility. Transportation Research Circular No.E-C211.  Washington, DC: Transportation Research Board.


Professionals involved in safe mobility for seniors often use various technical terms that may not be well understood by all stakeholders. The purpose of this circular was to harmonize and provide a reference document of terminologies for stakeholders such as clinicians, transportation service providers, and researchers.  The overall goal was to increase coherence of communication amongst groups and potentially have a positive impact on multi-disciplinary collaborations.
