The Role of Gerontology in Bridging Gaps in Policy

Malaysia is expected to become an ageing nation in just a few decades. But how prepared are we to meet the needs of our ageing population? And what can research do to inform policy makers? On today’s show, we look at the development of the field of gerontology and the role it plays in bridging the gaps in policy, research and practice.
