Abstract

We will address examples of sex and gender integration throughout the research process, such as knowledge synthesis and research design, knowledge transfer. The integration of sex and gender considerations in research is considered good science; however, this has not been systematically implemented in research. Furthermore, the Canadian Institutes for Health Research and other funding agencies require that sex and gender be addressed in grant proposals. The overall aim of this workshop is to provide participants with an introduction to sex and gender based analyses in health research. Learning objectives include: 1) to identify definitions of sex and gender; and 2) to recognize elements of sex and gender based analyses in quantitative and qualitative research. The workshop will provide examples relevant to rehabilitation. Resources pertaining to sex and gender in research will be provided to participants.
