In this Third Rail edition of the CFP Podcast, Associate Scientific Editor Dr. Sarah Fraser interviews Dr. Elizabeth Niedra and Ameera Musah. Dr. Fraser and Dr. Niedra take a deep dive looking at misogyny as a possible root of ageism in long-term care, how this misogyny can affect the care of all patients in this setting, and ideas for improvement. Ameera Musah adds her insights on the neglect the long-term care sector continues to endure and how it affects both patients and health care providers.
Dr. Niedra is a family physician with a focus on care of the elderly. She is also a writer who published an essay in CFP about a much-needed feminized form of leadership in health care. Ameera Musah is a nurse in a long-term care facility who is interested in seeing front-line care providers have a greater voice in media coverage of health care.
