Sex and gender competency essential to medical care
Date:2/12/2013

The Food and Drug Administration recently announced a change to current dosages for sleeping medications in women to half the current prescribed level, and research suggests that flu dosages for women be reconsidered as well. Consideration of how women respond to medicine should be common practice, but we aren't there yet. To accelerate the integration of sex and gender influences into medical education and clinical training, the Sex and Gender Women's Health Collaborative (SGWHC) proudly announces the launch of the first and only digital resource dedicated solely to sex and gender evidence based care to promote health and improve disease outcomes. We invite you to visit us at: http://sgwhc.org.

"Both sex and gender have a major impact on health and wellbeing, and so should be considered in every aspect of medicine," says Kimberly Templeton, MD, Professor of orthopedic surgery at Kansas University Medical Center (Kansas City), and a board member of both the American Medical Women's Association and the American College of Women's Health Physicians, two founding partners of SGWHC.org.

"Mounting scientific evidence demonstrates unequivocally that women and men vary down to each cell. Sex differences in disease prevention and management should be recognized and applied to provide optimal health care for everyone," says Dr. Templeton.

"Historically, sex and gender focused health information has been fragmented and difficult to access, adversely impacting medical education and, ultimately, patient care. In response, SGWHC is advocating for universal inclusion of a culturally competent, sex- and gender-based approach to medical education and training," says, Janice Werbinski, MD, Medical Director of Borgess Women's Health in Kalamazoo, MI, and SGWHC executive director.
