Hello Meena, and thank you for your suggestions. Modules like the Ageing Empathy Exercise can be very valuable tools and we are lucky to have such a trove to explore. In medical education, our focus is on the students, but we are developing these resource to serve the ageing members of our community and they will be among our best teachers as we refine our concept and bring it to fruition. Through interviews and real-life medcial visits with friends and family we will figure out exactly what needs to be included in the training and how the program needs to be desinged so that it truly serves those who will encounter it.

Thank you, Kevin; great point. I've read that touch deprivation increases feelings of isolation and can be detrimental to our health.
