This webinar will explore what value, if any, there is in using age as a predictor or impetus for testing, examining and diagnosing older adults. How helpful is the use of age and are there other factors that should and can take precedence? What do we know and what don’t we know if we know someone’s age.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants can explore their own potential age biases.
  • Participants can determine the value of age as a predictor of health issues, diagnosis and treatments.
  • Participants can advocate for patients, clients, family and themselves to ensure that a holistic health care approach beyond age is employed by practitioners.
