Write a 500‐750‐word essay on the Stages‐of‐Life and the influence of age in health care from a patient’s perspective. Interview a friend or family member about that person’s experiences with the health care system. You may develop your own list of questions.
- Do you feel that your stage‐of‐life had any effect on your interaction with health care professionals?
- Which areas of the hospital or clinic were most concerned with your well‐being and feelings?
- Was your family with you during this hospital stay or outpatient visit?
- Was your family included in your treatment, such as post‐procedure instructions?
