Can you see yourself at 90 years of age? 100? What does that look like to you? How do you think healthcare practitioners will treat you? In an ideal world, it is with compassion, dignity, and best practices. Unfortunately, this may not be the case in healthcare today. In this course, you will learn about ageism.
