3302.0 Aging Population Health Issues

Monday, November 5, 2007: 2:30 PM
The current population in the United States is rapidly aging and the health care system will soon be overwhelmed with the health issues of an elderly population. It is imperative that access to healthcare and preventive services for this population be addressed. The presentations in this session will discuss access to care through Medicare, health disparities, and preventive health screenings.
Session Objectives: At the conclusion of the session, the participant (learner) will be able to: 1. Describe the components of Medicare Part D.; 2. Apply the steps in developing a theoretical framework to aging disparities in health care; 3. Assess barriers to preventive health care among elderly populations; 4. Describe the public health impact of an aging public without access to health care.
