We are very fortunate to have Dr. Vu Kiet Tran back this month to talk about Ageism.
Ageism is discriminating or stereotyping someone based on their age. It is very much prevalent in Western medical culture. It presents in insidious ways, such as the observed tendency for doctors to dismiss patients and pathologies in seniors due to old age; the severe lack of geriatric specialists in many provinces; and the fact that seniors spend less time talking to their physicians than any other age group.
Dr. Tran and Dr. Dimitre conclude that being aware of our inherent ageism is the first step in combating it.
