Abstract

African American elders are a diverse group whose values and beliefs are part of the ethics of United States society. The interplay between these beliefs and the health care system offers many challenges for the geriatrician. Addressing issues of autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, truth-telling, confidentiality, and justice are important in caring for African American elders.
