Gender Stereotypes in Research and Clinical Care
Gender stereotypes can have a profound influence on research findings and clinical care, but remain poorly recognized by researchers and clinicians alike. By accounting for gender in research design, data collection, analysis, and knowledge translation, we will be able to equitably deliver the best treatment to the right people at the right time at the right dose, in the spirit of personalized health.

The goal of this webinar is to identify how gender roles, gender identity, and gender relations shape stereotypes that negatively influence research findings and clinical care, and to propose corrective solutions.

Led by Cara Tannenbaum, MD, Msc, the webinar will explain how unconscious gender stereotypes permeate our diagnostic and research tools, our language, and even our therapeutic management strategies for older men and women. Dr. Tannenbaum will provide concrete examples and propose the latest approaches to mitigate gender bias, change the way we collect and analyze data, and apply evidence to improve the health of aging populations.

The free, one-hour webinar will explore:
• How do gender roles, gender identity, and gender relations shape stereotypes that influence clinical care?
• How do gender stereotypes influence “normal” clinical or diagnostic standards ?
• How do gender stereotypes create stigma that influence how patients seek care or enroll in studies?
• How do gender stereotypes affect LGBTQ patient care and research?
• What are research priorities and strategies for overcoming gender stereotypes?
• What are cognitive steps to integrate sex and gender into teaching and clinical practice?
