Ageism Is Bad for Health, Care, and Research – December CARE Connections

Ageism has been shown to negatively impact healthcare delivery and health outcomes. It also affects health research, as described in the December 2022 issue of CARE Connections, the monthly newsletter of the SoN’s Center for Aging Research and Education. Here’s an excerpt:

“I’ve also had reviewers say that older adults aren’t able to do MRIs, because they can’t lie still and understand what they’re supposed to do,” says Bratzke.

This month’s CARE Connections also includes a resource for family conversations about aging and care preferences; a profile of CARE Affiliate Kristen Pickett, PhD; and news related to older adult health and well-being.
