About the Authors
  • Until the past decade, clinicians and researchers assumed that the medical evaluation and treatment of both women and men were the same. This archaic and dangerous notion persisted in spite of the clear anatomic and physiologic differences between the genders. Today, we fully understand that this paradigm is false. In all specialties of medicine, practitioners and researchers are beginning to consider the influence of sex and gender and how it should inform the care of their patients. This book focuses on the issue of sex and gender in the evaluation and treatment of patients specifically in the delivery of acute medical care. It serves as a guide both to clinicians interested in the impact of sex and gender on their practice and to researchers interested in the current state of the art in the field and critical future research directions.

    • The first book to examine the significance of sex and gender from the perspective of delivery of acute medical care
    • The publication of the book coincides with new regulations to include the study of sex and gender differences in all phases of research
    • Each clinical topic is framed by a clinical case, followed by a discussion of current evidence, summary highlights and recommended areas of future research
