This symposium, Aging as a Risk Factor for Inequitable Care: The Intersection of Age and Health Equity, was originally delivered at the SGIM22 annual meeting in Orlando (April 2022).

Learning Objectives:

  • Define ageism
  • Describe examples of ageism taht are present in everyday clinical practice
  • List appropriate communication strateiges for approaching older adult decision making
  • Discuss systematic approaches to combatting ageism in healthcare
This symposium identifies generalizable GIM-based strategies to advocate for improving ageist biases at the individual patient/provider and health system level.  Presenter will highlight the pervasiveness of ageism in healthcare through a series of cases that demonstrate common occurences of ageism in practice.  Presenters will outline ways to combat ageism and intersectionality at the patient level (using the 4 M's framework of mobility, medications, mentations and, very importantly what matters most).
