Canadian and international funding bodies have started to place a priority on the inclusion of sex and gender analysis in health services and policy research, which has implications for researchers.
CHEPA faculty member Meredith Vanstone will present a seminar on Nov. 20 that explores the practical and theoretical implications of those guidelines. As part of her presentation, Sex and gender analysis in policy research, she will also suggest strategies and resources to help researchers successfully incorporate these ideas into their next study.
Vanstone, who is an Assistant Professor in McMaster’s Department of Clinical Epidemiology & Biostatistics and a CHEPA faculty member, was a post-doctoral fellow at the centre in 2012-13. She has a PhD in health professional education from Western University and a BA (Hons) in philosophy and health studies from McMaster.
The seminar will be held on Wednesday Nov. 20 in CRLB 119 from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. All are welcome to attend. The seminar will be available remotely for those who are unable to attend.
