What can you expect at your age?

An ageism in health care project by the Older Women’s Network NSW (OWN NSW) and Health Consumers NSW (HCNSW).

In 2017, research released by the EveryAGE Counts campaign demonstrated that health care settings were the second most likely of places mentioned by older people in Australia reporting experiences of ageism. Combined with a rapidly ageing population over the next decades, OWN and HCNSW decided to partner to further investigate the issue of ageism in the health care sector in NSW.
