Webinar: Engaging Nursing to Diminish Ageism (July 5 & 6)

Ageism, is a socially accepted “ism” of thinking about ageing and older people in a negative and discriminatory manner. Stereotypes and discrimination related to age affect the physical and psychological well-being of older people every day. Ageism is also evident in the health and social systems and within the professions working with older persons.

In this webinar, we will explore how nurses can help diminish negative perspectives of ageing and the care of older persons by incorporating the ideas of life-course and harmonious ageing theories into their everyday practice.

Join the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) for this research-based presentation on Engaging Nursing to Diminish Ageism. Discover how LPNs can be a part of a positive change when it comes to the misconceptions about what gerontological nursing means.

The presentation includes a live Q&A with the University of Alberta Faculty of Nursing and CLPNA representatives.
