About this book

This book is a concise, easy to read professional text with a focus on practical aspects. All chapters include tables on sex/gender differences in symptoms and management and a series of suggestions to the novice in the field. Chapters are specialty-specific. The focus is not on women’s health, but the presentation of differences in clinical symptoms, management and outcomes in women and men. Gender Medicine strives to employ the knowledge about these differences to improve diagnosis, better understand pathogenesis and advance patient-oriented therapy.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This unique book both defines gender medicine and explores how medical illness differs in men and women. … The book is written for any medical professional in a clinical discipline, including physicians, nurses, midlevel providers, and students. It is also appropriate for medical researchers. … provides a comprehensive review of the literature and aims to improve the management and treatment of both women and men through evidence-based research. … this book is a useful tool to help refine the delivery and efficacy of medical care.” (Heather Huang, Doody’s Review Service, March, 2012)
