Sex-Based Differences in Research Webinar
March 28 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EDT
FREE WEBINAR presented by CITI Program – Featuring AMWA Leaders
Sex and gender are variables that have been found to impact all health conditions experienced by both women and men. Unfortunately, clinical research has not consistently assessed and reported results based on sex, impacting patient care now and in the future. Sex-specific data is needed to provide optimal, personalized care; without this data, it is impossible to know if a given intervention is effective and safe for everyone. Data disaggregated and reported by sex is also needed to inform the education of current healthcare professionals across the learning spectrum, as well as to serve as the basis of future research.
In this webinar, we will differentiate the concepts of sex and gender and consider the impact of these variables on research outcomes and patient care. The presenters will review the National Institutes of Health (NIH) policy on sex as a biological variable (SABV) and how it relates to research and discuss the importance of the inclusion of sex and gender in research proposals.Register for Webinar
