Description

This course explores the question of how race and gender differences in long-term care use and outcomes should be considered in assessing current programs and proposals for reform. Understanding the reasons for and consequences of these differences can illuminate basic issues in community care. The focus on gender and race highlights the intersection of clinical judgments and personal preferences in defining the need for care, as well as consumer and care-provider roles in shaping servicedelivery dynamics. Evidence is first presented for race and gender differences in disease prevalence, morbidity, mortality, and levels of disability. Group differences in care-giving and their consequences are also highlighted.
