abstract
"This book will fill this void by contributing a comprehensive resource to locate empirically-informed approaches to research design, methods, and analysis relevant to gender, sex and health research. It is clear that generic methods are insufficient. Indeed, the lack of integration of sex and gender into research practices has led to poor science in some instances, where the impact of sex, gender and related considerations has been overlooked in design, method, and analysis. The purpose of this book is to provide the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex study design, methods, and analysis in health research. The authors draw attention to the methodological complexities, and offer ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines"--

Appeared in Choice on 2011-11-01:
Oliffe and Greaves (both, Univ. of British Columbia) offer a work with chapters that address design, methods, and dissemination of gender, sex, and health research. The volume is a product of a Canadian research team, NEXUS, that studied the social context of health behavior from 2003 to 2009. Its organization is traditional, with four parts titled "Context and Concepts," "Design," "Sex and Gender Research," and "Policy, Process, and Products.. Within this framework the contributors emphasize the critical importance of incorporating sex and gender into the design, data collection, data analyses, and translation/transmission of health research. Of particular value are the chapters that describe research methods and dissemination activities by using empirical examples of health studies designed to account for issues of sex and gender. This volume makes important contributions to the health research literature in its coverage of the ethics of incorporating sex and gender into health research; the diffusion of knowledge into policy, practice, and intervention; and nontypical research designs and methods such as analysis of visual artifacts, secondary data analysis, and content/discourse analysis. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-level undergraduates and above. P. Lefler Bluegrass Community & Technical College

Summaries
Main Description
Integrating both sex (biological characteristics) and gender (socially constructed factors) into any health study is vital in order to produce ethical, accurate, and effective research findings. This book provides the first resource dedicated to critically examining gender and sex study designs, methods, and analyses in health research. The contributors draw attention to the methodological complexities, and offer ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines.

In order to produce ethical, accurate, and effective research findings it is vital to integrate both sex (biological characteristics) and gender (socially constructed factors) into any health study. This book draws attention to some of the methodological complexities in this enterprise and offers ways to thoughtfully address these by drawing on empirical examples across a range of topics and disciplines.
