Timely Tip: Identifying Age Bias in Health Care

The Alliance for Aging Research notes these indications that our elderly don’t always receive the best medical care:

  1. Older patients are less likely than younger patients to receive preventive care.
  2. Older patients are less likely to be screened for diseases and other health problems.
  3. Proven medical interventions for older patients are often ignored, leading to inappropriate or incomplete treatment.
  4. Older people are consistently excluded from clinical trials, even though they are the largest users of approved drugs.

Learn the full story about declining medical care for Americans as we age in Fighting for a Fighting Chance – Do Doctors Give Up on the Elderly?, a feature article in the January 2007 edition of Caregiver’s Home Companion.
