Evidence-based medicine and Research:

When discussing research and evidence-based medicine ask your students:

  • Is there gender bias inherent in the hypothesis of a study?

  • Is the inclusion or exclusion of women as participants in a study  appropriate?

  • Does data analysis properly identify results by sex?

  • Can findings from studies that exclude particular groups such as women, children, or particular races, be generalized and applied to those groups? [2]
