Gender in Medicine: it is about improving quality

Gender in Medicine: it is about improving quality

Basel, 9-10 December 2011. The autumn Symposium 2011 of the Swiss TPH will focus on “Gender in medicine: it is about improving quality” and will commemorate the 5 year period funded by the Gabriele Trust Foundation to forward women’s health and gender research at the Medical Faculty of the University of Basel. The symposium features the conceptual challenges of integrating the concept of gender in a biomedical research context, in clinical practice and in Public Health, and presents research strategies and findings of the last decade regarding gender sensitive interventions and health care, both internationally and in Switzerland, as part of a quality of care issue.

There are key-note lectures from international leaders on the concept of gender in medicine, on gender paradoxes met in health care and Public Health, and on achievements and challenges of gender sensitive health interventions and health care. Workshops will integrate international, national and Swiss TPH speakers. A poster section displays research activities of the Gender and Health Unit.

The symposium will allow participants to learn from experiences in gender health research as bridging the socio-cultural and biological dimensions of health, and different disciplines. 

The Swiss TPH is a member of the Network Medicus Mundi Switzerland
