The social impacts of aging

The social impacts of ageing

We’ve talked about the practical problems and some solutions. Aging is not just a personal issue. The social impacts are also severe.

I would like you to read the article first and think more: Crossing the perspectives of patients, families, and physicians on cancer treatment: A qualitative study., written by Orri et al in 2016. Its free full text is provided by Oncotarget. This article is explaining different perspectives from patients, their family, and the physicians. Although it is applied to the cancer context, it might be applied to any long-term healthcare context. If you have found other articles related to it, you are welcome to share them.

In the next step, you may begin another new chapter through Dave’s point of view. Let’s watch his patient-side story.
