After watching this module’s video and reviewing the module’s websites, address the following question in your initial post:
- Dishman says, “The health reform bill is largely ignoring the realities of the age wave that’s coming, and the implications for what we need to do to change not only how we pay for care, but deliver care in some radically different ways.” What are some limitations of the ability of our current healthcare system to meet the needs of an increasingly diverse aging population? Include mention of any pertinent stakeholders.
In responding to your peers’ posts, be sure to comment not only on their reaction to Dishman’s TEDMED Talk but also on their discussion of limitations of our current healthcare system. Offer any questions or counterpoints for discussion to your peers’ posts as well. Do you agree or disagree with your peers’ responses to the discussion question? Why or why not?
