Ageism in the Health Care System: Providers, Patients, and Systems

Please read the book chapter by Mary F. Wyman and colleagues, which explores how the social inequalities and stigmas associated with aging manifest in the health care system specifically. As you read, think about times you've seen this play out in clinical care (in your roles as a patient, a student, or a practitioner). Think about how you might both lead systemic change within your institution or unit, but also how you might alter your clinical practice in light of these insights?
