Purpose of Activity:
To provide information about age and diagnosis discrimination in health care.
Despite education and professional preparation, age and diagnosis discrimination persists in health care. A case scenario describes discrimination that could have resulted in untimely death without advocacy and intervention by 1 informed professional. Nurses must identify their own attitudes and behaviors associated with age, diagnosis, and their role within the interprofessional team to identify when discrimination may be occurring and claim their responsibility as advocate to ethically intervene on behalf of patients and families when appropriate.
After completing this continuing education activity you will be able to:
• Discern the issues of ageism and diagnosis discrimination in health care.
• Identify the role of the nurse in patient advocacy.
Topics: Advocacy, Ageism, Cancer, Discrimination, Ethics
Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
