Gender Specific Issues

Gender Specific Issues

1 In the assessment of clinical problems that might present differently in men and women, maintain an inclusive differential diagnosis that allows for these differences (e.g., women with coronary artery disease, depression in males).

2 As part of caring for women with health concerns, assess the possible contribution of domestic violence.

3 When men and women present with stress-related health concerns, assess the possible contribution of role-balancing issues (e.g., work-life balance or between partners).

4 Establish office policies and practices to ensure patient comfort and choice, especially with sensitive examinations (e.g., positioning for Pap, chaperones for genital/rectal exams).

5 Interpret and apply research evidence for your patients in light of gender bias present in clinical studies (e.g., ASA use in women).
