AFC Webinar – Do Interventions to Reduce Ageism Work? A Meta-Analysis Review Finds Promising Results
December 7, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Research has found a strong link between ageism (in the form of negative stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination toward older people) and harm to older adult physical and mental health, as well as a potential risk factor for elder abuse. Little is known about the effectiveness of strategies to reduce ageism. Dr. David Burnes will share the findings from a systematic review and meta-analysis assessing the relative effects of different intervention types (education, intergenerational contact, and combined education/intergenerational contact) designed to reduce ageism among youths and adults. Findings indicate feasible and effective interventions to reduce ageism. This presentation is offered in collaboration with Elder Abuse Prevention Ontario.
