Untying the gordian knot: What we do and don't know about gender-specific medicine - Keynote address for the 2014 academic emergency medicine consensus conference

Marianne Legato

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Over the past two decades, a burgeoning interest in women's health, the direct consequence of the feminist movement, has inspired a worldwide interest in the differences between the normal function of men and women and their unique experiences of the same illnesses. The scope and significance of what we have discovered and continue to find has fundamentally changed the way we prevent, diagnose, and treat diseases. Important questions remain, however, and deserve specific investigation and analysis.
