Effects of age on outcome in the SENTIS trial: better outcomes in elderly patients. (2/2)

But perhaps the most insidious thing about ageism is the way it affects how we think about ourselves. We lose our abilities to think, feel and perform when we buy into the myth thats what old people do-decline. A study that compared memory abilities of young and old Chinese and young and old Americans found little difference on the scores of the Chinese but a significant difference in the two American cohorts. This is a vivid illustration of a culturally generated self-fulfilling prophecy. Ashton Applewhite, author of This Chair Rocks: A Manifesto Against Ageism, nails it when she writes, Ageism makes growing older in America far harder than it has to be.. Ageist statements are common in our language and we use them ourselves without thinking. We misplace something and chalk it up to having a senior moment. We send over the hill birthday greetings to each other. We refer to someone as being in their second childhood as if the only thing left to do in later years is play our days away. ...

The healthcare community is not immune to the deleterious effects of ageism. It permeates the attitudes of medical providers, the mindset of older patients, and the structure of the healthcare system, having a potentially profound influence on the type and amount of care offered, requested, and received.. Ageism Among Healthcare Providers. Adults ages 65 and older see doctors on average twelve times per year, and nearly 80 percent see a primary clinician at least once per year (Davis et al., 2011). These visits represent critical opportunities for providers to promote physical and psychosocial health, and patients expect counseling that is individualized for their functional status, life expectancy, and care preferences. Providers knowledge and attitudes about aging can affect how accurately and sensitively they distinguish normal changes associated with aging from acute illness and chronic disease. Ageism can take the form of a provider dismissing treatable pathology as a feature of old age, ...

We must keep in mind that not just age dictates COVID mortality; underlying health conditions are a contributing factor. Its not okay to assume that all people age 65 and older are frail, vulnerable, or victims. In fact, some came out of retirement to share their wisdom on the frontlines.. I asked the Senator for consistent federal guidelines and leadership regarding COVIDs response and messaging. I asked that we attempt to learn from what happened during COVID and try to focus on alternatives to physical and social isolation, and that older adults be included in these discussions. I also asked for elected officials to call out ageism and to be held accountable for their words, actions, and policies that perpetuate ageism. Senator Casey said he refuses to accept the deaths in nursing homes and is committed to addressing it. I appreciate his dedication to learning from this as urgent and decisive action is needed to reduce these mortality rates. Im also mindful that only 3-4% of qualifying ...

So its hardly surprising that ageism is endemic in the creative professions today: dead people dont do good creative. (Check out the epitaphs in Islingtons cemeteries if you dont believe me.). But keep looking at that chart. Youll see that once creatives started to read their own award-winning ads about the dangers of drink-driving, cirrhosis, cocaine and fatty food - and began to embrace colonic irrigation and quinoa (possibly not in that order) - things started looking up.. In fact, the chart clearly shows that if I die this year, I will probably be 96 years old. (But then, back when I was facing a 37-year lifespan I had better things to do than sit around in statistics classes.). The obvious conclusion is that if agencies had any sense theyd stop ejecting copywriters and art directors at the first sign of a grey hair. The fact is that experience means you spend a lot less time diving down dead ends. You question dodgy strategies and briefs before, not after, they send you into a ...
Patients are not usually in a position to assess the appropriateness of the care they receive, and they trust their doctors to act in their best interests. Ageism in medicine needs to be tackled to preserve-or recapture-this trust within an ageing population. Clinicians, managers, and educationalists need to work together to eradicate it. A wide ranging approach is required if equity in the provision of health care by age is to be ensured.. Clinical guidelines should be developed and regularly updated to enable clinicians to make more informed decisions about treating older people, and access to investigations and treatments should be monitored centrally.28 These developments may be given impetus in the United Kingdom by the recently established National Institute for Clinical Excellence and internationally by the emphasis on clinical governance. Hospital league tables of intervention rates by the age and sex of the patient and standardised for the age and sex distribution in the population ...

Id already been thinking about the elderly -my father recently had major heart surgery, while other family members and friends have had their own health struggles-and, then I came across Oliver Sachss December 14 New York Times column about how Knopf has refused to publish a large-print edition of his newest book. Sachs, a respected neurologist, has been one of Americas best non-fiction authors for decades, but is now elderly and cannot read regular-print books. When he asked about a large-print edition, he was told that one is not necessary because we have e-books, which allow us to blow up the size of the type as much as we want.[i] Sachs, though, does not want an e-reader, which could be dropped in the bath or broken, and which has controls I would need a magnifying glass to see. I want a real book made of paper with print.. The publishers utter disregard in this case is disconcerting, but emblematic of what Katelyn Angell calls our cultural obsession with youth.[ii] ...
Rather than simply teach the staff about adaptive ideas, we considered the value of giving them an opportunity to experience a variety of these age-related conditions firsthand while dining, to empower them to better understand a residents experience and create a more age-friendly environment.

I just recently watched a TED talk by Dr. Laura Carstensen, Director of the Stanford Center on Longevitiy, in which she discusses the research that shows people are actually happier as they age into older adulthood. What made this talk interesting and why I suggest people listen to it (or watch it) is that it goes against many of our attitudes about older adulthood and aging which are typically fairly negative. In fact, Dr. Mary Kite and her colleagues synthesized the research that compared peoples attitudes toward older and younger adults and, not surprisingly, found that we typically perceive younger adults more positively than older adults and still hold negative views toward older adults. Obviously, these negative attitudes have implications for how many people treat and interact with older adults just as we would expect when thinking about negative attitudes towards ethnic and religious groups. In fact, in one of his farewell addresses, the Archbishop of Canterbury made it a point to ...

Agreed, but Id say that what you call ageism Id describe as stereotyping. Not a lot different than my thoughts and concerns viewing those younger than me and Im old enough to have quite a few decades of successors, allowing me to be judgemental of several generations. Guess our brains group similar things rather than isolate each item (person) for what it is. My ageing brain cells do recall practicing my own *ageism* on those older than I from years gone by in my youth, or call it differences between myself at that time and those seniors over 40. ...

I dont believe that generational warfare was designed by the 1% to distract the rest of us from looking at class differences, as stated in One Percent.

Get people to blame the 1% and they wont be so ready to place the responsibility where it lies - in the way boys and girls are raised, and indoctrinated, into pushing their way forward, seeking more money, and more power. Whats more, the main divide isnt between the young and old; it isnt a generational divide. Its between each level of society, between those struggling for more and those who have it and are trying to keep it ...
There have been many reports in the media concerning older people who feel they are being discriminated against by their health care providers due to age. This can take the form of doctors not giving the same level of care or appropriate treatment due to the patients age. It could also come in the form of older patients feeling patronised by their health care providers. Older people can be manipulated into going into nursing facilities when they actually do not wish to. Many older people claim that they have faced negative attitudes from health care staff simply because of their age.. ...

Discrimination based on age (young or old) is ageism. Because the term elderly connotes a stereotype, avoid using it as a noun. When referring to the entire population of elderly persons, use of the elderly may be appropriate (as in the impact of prescription drug costs on the elderly, for example). Otherwise, terms such as older persons, older people, elderly patients, geriatric patients, older adults, older patients, aging adults, persons 65 years and older, or the older population are preferred. Note: In studies that involve human beings, age should always be given specifically. Researchers in geriatrics may use defined terms

Old age refers to ages nearing or surpassing the life expectancy of human beings, and is thus the end of the human life cycle. Terms and euphemisms include old people (worldwide usage), seniors (American usage), senior citizens (British and American usages), older adults (in the social sciences), the elderly, and elders (in many cultures-including the cultures of aboriginal people). Old people often have limited regenerative abilities and are more susceptible to disease, syndromes, and sickness than younger adults. The organic process of ageing is called senescence, the medical study of the aging process is called gerontology, and the study of diseases that afflict the elderly is called geriatrics. The elderly also face other social issues around retirement, loneliness, and ageism. Old age is not a definite biological stage, as the chronological age denoted as old age varies culturally and historically. In 2011, the United Nations proposed a human rights convention that would specifically ...

Elderly people could for the first time be given extra protections to stop them being ripped off or discriminated against when they buy mortgages, insurance, and savings products, as watchdogs launch an investigation into financial ageism.
As someone with the face of a fifteen year old trapped in a 19 year olds life, I can testify that Ageism is a huge factor in many aspects of my life including employment opportunities, work situations, public interactions, and conversations with adults, especially parents. I work at a camp and because of how young I look, the parents are reluctant to leave their child in my care and therefore the kids tend to ignore my authority, I cant really fault them because their own parents just discredited my right to lead when they asked if I was old enough to be left alone with children. My judgement is constantly undermined by parents and many adult figures. The other day I was flying home from college and (after a gate agent had tried to get me to board as a minor who needed a babysitter) an elderly man seated next to me instructed me to buckle up as we were sitting waiting for people to board the plane. I didnt buckle immediately because 1) We werent moving 2) I had the middle seat and someone ...
10.1 INTRODUCTION The QALYs that have been constructed so far have been built on the assumption that everyones QALYs are valued the same. In this chapter we analyze why and how to value individual or group QALYs differently. A major way that unequally weighted QALYs were introduced into CUA was via outcomes measured in terms of Disability Adjusted Life Years (DALYs). We cover DALYs in section 10.2 after we have clarified the meaning of equity and the role of QALY weights. DALYs give different weights to different age groups. Section 10.3 discusses the general issue of QALYs and age discrimination (ageism). DALYs rely on a different instrument for measuring utilities, that is, the person trade-off (PTO) method. The case for and against the PTO method in CUA is presented in section 10.4. The applications cover evaluations based on DALYs and the estimation of weights using the PTO method. 10.1.1 Equity in CUA Assuming costs are the same, Wagstaff (1991) associates the situation where person ...
Matt, first of all, see my reply to Bomb above. Second, we paid into Social Security and I realize the fund is so far into the red that that money is long gone. However, there are many of us who believe and feel as tho 60 is the new 30. Employers however, do not share that feeling and ageism is a very real problem, even for those who have great CVs. For those who never managed to make great careers but always paid their way, the last few years have been a disaster. My husband has been unemployed since he turned, oh, I guess, 47. All he could do was substitute teach and then janitorial or day work during the Summers. Hes only 60, so if Social Security even exists by then, he wont be eligible until hes 69. He would love to work and this is a world wide problem. We live in Israel and its just as bad, if not worse here. For that matter, even tho I am somewhat disabled, which caused me problems when we were still in the US, job wise, I could work if someone would have given me a chance. I was a ...
THURSDAY, June 25, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- From the start of the coronavirus pandemic, its been clear that older adults are especially vulnerable to serious illness.. Now, experts are concerned that older Americans are falling victim to ageism and messages that they are expendable amid the crisis.. The pandemic has seen horror stories from around the world on the toll exacted on older people, said Gordon Flett, a psychology professor at York University in Toronto.. In countries around the world, the SARS-CoV-2 virus has swept through nursing homes, sometimes aided by decisions to move ill patients from hospitals into care centers. Some of the worst stories, Flett noted, have included certain care homes in Spain where staff abandoned residents, leaving the military to find some dead in their beds; and hospitals in Lima, Peru, that stopped admitting older patients, partly because they are less likely to survive than younger people.. And outside of nursing homes and hospitals, instances of ...

Hemodynamic augmentation by partial aortic occlusion has been shown by several imaging techniques to increase cerebral blood flow by ≈30%, an effect that lasts beyond the procedure itself.4 The SENTIS trial tested the clinical efficacy and safety of the NeuroFlo device, that by increasing cerebral blood flow to ischemic brain was hypothesized to lead to reduced morbidity and mortality in acute stroke patients treated within 14 hours after onset of symptoms.1 SENTIS established safety for the NeuroFlo procedure but missed statistical significance for the primary clinical outcome end point. Arguably, the presence of collaterals, especially the presence of an intact Circle of Willis combined with sufficient cerebral perfusion pressure would increase the chance of an acute stroke patient to experience a better outcome. This could be mediated by establishing and stabilizing collateral perfusion to ischemic areas of the brain.5 Also, the presence of a FVP could be a prerequisite for any hemodynamic ...
This study examines the relationships between alcohol taxation, drinking during pregnancy, and infant health. Merged data from the US Natality Detailed Files, as well as the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (1985-2002), data regarding state taxes on beer, wine, and liquor, a state- and year-fixed-effect reduced-form regression were used. Results indicate that a one-cent ($0.01) increase in beer taxes decreased the incidence of low-birth-weight by about 1-2 percentage points. The binge drinking participation tax elasticity is −2.5 for beer and wine taxes and −9 for liquor taxes. These results demonstrate the potential intergenerational impact of increasing alcohol taxes.

Adeles insights into the joy and tragedy of medicine combined with the sheer fragility of life resonate with many of the questions other medical practitioners may be tossing around as they approach the twilight of their careers.. Its no secret that some doctors have an inordinate commitment to their work, often to the detriment of their own personal development.. Im still working 15 hours a week as a GP in Subiaco and so many older people, doctors among them, come up to me and say oh, what am I going to do now? And some of them are anxious and depressed about what the future may hold.. Theres a creeping ageism in the medical workforce. Perhaps not so much for GPs, but Ive had surgeons come to me and say they feel theyre being subtly pushed out. It can be difficult in a highly skill-based profession.. On the other hand, I was speaking with a retired doctor whos approaching 90. Hes just discovered sculpture and painting and is also writing a memoir for his grandchildren.. We have ...
Description: This investigation was conducted in response to the need for effective diversity awareness programs to help employers create intergenerational-friendly work environments. An experimental pre- and post-test control group randomized block design was employed to answer two research questions about the effects of a simulation game on knowledge and attitudes about age-related changes in learning and work behaviors of older workers. Participants were assessed immediately prior to and following the treatment, followed by a third assessment 60 days later. Necessary measures were taken to control for threats to the studys internal validity. An applicant pool comprised of human resource management and development practitioners and senior undergraduate students enrolled in human resource management courses yielded a sample of 65 participants. Chapter one introduces the study. Chapter two provides a review and summary of relevant literature on ageism in the workplace, training older workers, ...
I remain very interested in what happens to men and women aged over 75, with and at risk of cancer. I remain very interested in the considerable ambivalence of cancer charities towards what happens to men and women aged 75 and over with and at risk of cancer. I wonder, out loud and at length, what any single issue cancer charity thinks the phrase cancer is largely a disease of ageing actually means. None choose to trumpet their concern for older men and women in particular; is that because theyre old and no one likes them? None claim them as a key constituency and only Macmillan conspicuously do any advocacy for this group.. I dont believe Macmillan do it so no other cancer charity has to. Prostate Cancer UK recently used the phrase prostate cancer is not just a disease of ageing neatly, and unfortunately, demonstrating their ageism. The implication seems to be that prostate cancer is only truly significant when younger men are attached to the agenda. Thats Movembers schtick, not theirs, ...
