    3. Webinar: Cancer in the Elderly / Personas Mayores CON Cancer

    Recorded in December 2020. Approximately 35 minutes in length. English and Spanish recordings available.

    Speaker: Tania Estapé, PhD

    Cancer is a disease of the elderly, as its incidence increases with age. However, many elderly people arrive late to the diagnosis or have attitudes of denial due to erroneous beliefs, pessimism or taboos towards the possibility of cure or early detection. We also find negative beliefs or resignation towards their own age, which influence these attitudes. In addition, many elderly people come from a time when health / disease was a matter for the doctor, there was no information on healthy lifestyles and the idea that one could do something to reduce the risk of cancer or other diseases. All of this greatly depends on the culture, society and resources in patient's environment. It is important to design strategies adapted to the development stage of the elderly and give them the possibility to actively choose.

    ______________________________________________

    El cáncer es una enfermedad de mayores, pues su incidencia sube con la edad. Sin embargo, muchas personas de edad avanzada llegan tarde al diagnóstico o tienen actitudes de negación por creencias erróneas, pesimismo o tabús hacía la posibilidad de curación o detección precoz. También encontramos creencias negativas o de resignación hacía su propia edad, que influyen en estas actitudes. Además, muchos ancianos provienen de una época en que la salud / enfermedad, era cosa del médico, no había información sobre estilos de vida saludables ni la idea de que uno podía hacer algo para reducir el riesgo de cáncer o de otras enfermedades. Todo esto, depende enormemente de la cultura,la sociedad y recursos en el entorno del paciente. Es importante diseñar estrategias adaptadas a la etapa evolutiva de los mayores y darles la posibilidad de elegir activamente.
