Doc Talk #208 – Talking About My Generation

In this episode, we talked about the impact of different generational views of health, and what these differences mean for us as patients and healthcare providers.

Our experiences of the world, significant events that shaped our lives, and the prevailing social cultures or attitudes in our formative years, mean that individuals born in different generations have very different views on health, and what it means to be healthy.

It is important for healthcare providers and systems to take these attitudes into account, when planning and delivering healthcare, whether at the level of a population (such as policy) or at the level of the individual patient (such as during a consultation).

Whether you are a boomer, part of the traditional generation, millennial, generation X-er or even a generation Z, we’re sure you’ll find something in this show of interest!
