Sabine Oertelt-Prigione Implementing sex and gender aspects in medicine – a systemic viewThe incorporation of sex and gender aspects is experiencing increasing attention in medicine, due to a continuous rise in scientific publications and a changing research landscape. These aspects address different angles of the issue, which need to be coordinated to achieve a widespread and sustainable implementation.
Focusing on sex differences is offering new perspectives in clinical medicine and research practice, but how can we accelerate its translation into practice? How does practice intersect with structural aspects and can the sex and gender specific medicine be a model of structural change? I will highlight some options and focus on which systemic aspects will need to be taken into account.
In my future work I will focus as much on the content of the research as on how it is done, combining discoveries with the development of systematic instruments that shall allow a rapid transfer of our understandings into other people´s work.
