Write an 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. Suggested 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?
