The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted older adults. COVID-19 has
highlighted ageism and health disparities in the inpatient, long-term care, and outpatient
settings, in addition to raising ethical dilemmas it has created. Our presenters, all experienced practitioners and educators, will address each of these areas (inpatient, long-term care setting, outpatient and ethics). This webinar will address disparities of care that older adults face in continuum of care and ethical issues deepened by the COVID-19 pandemic.
