Sex and gender are variables that have been found to impact all health conditions. 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 it, 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 and serve as the basis of future research.
In this webinar, we differentiate the concepts of sex and gender and consider the impact of these variables on research outcomes and patient care. The presenters review the National Institutes of Health (NIH) policy on sex as a biological variable (SABV) and how it relates to research. They also discuss the importance of including of sex and gender in research proposals.
