The effect of ageism on older people and implications for nursing practice

Charlie Banister Nursing student, Birmingham City University, England

Ageism has numerous negative effects on the lives of older people, including their health and well-being. In this reflective account a nursing student explores these effects in the context of an incident where she was inadvertently ageist. She considers what she has learned from this incident and the implications for nursing practice.
