Title: Patient Care: A Gender Perspective

A man-centered world recently discovered that women are different from men and therefore created a new sub-topic of medicine:

  • Gender medicine: a task for the third millennium. ... Gender-specific medicine is the study of how diseases differ between men and women in terms of prevention, clinical signs, therapeutic approach, prognosis, psychological and social impact. It is a neglected dimension of medicine. ( Gender medicine: a task for the third millennium. - NCBI)

Men were classified with numberless epidemiological/statistical approaches and classified on the basis of a single parameter/symptom or a cluster of them.
Each part of the body belong to different clusters or classification and can be shared by different branches of medicine. the same leg can belong to a diabetologist, vascular surgeon, orthopedic, general practitioner, internal medicine, dermatologist..... 14 Billion legs (estimate 2019) * the number of clusters.

Now the same approach will be duplicated on the female world. The era of Big Data is here: 2 * Big Data.

We just doubled the number but the approach to Patient Care didn't change.

    • General Directors
      • and so on

Every healthcare practitioner is responsible for a small part of your body and has full insurance to cover her/his mistakes in their limited activity.

This is the man approach to caring of the patient, doesn't matter the sex of the operator

Gender Perspective

The woman's approach to caring is different. For centuries women cared their children and everybody has only one mother. Children usually got personalized care. And they didn't realize that. It was just right.

Now we talk about personalized medicine: a mother-like caring or a mountain of ununderstandable data?

Should we ask patients what they would prefer?

How a mother-like caring (a Gender Perspective) can be implemented in the real world?

The Gender Perspective is the real neglected dimension of medicine
