Primary and Secondary Preventive Women's Health
Even though primary care is one of the most important areas of women’s health, it is severely underutilized. The Office of Women’s Health is investigating barriers and facilitators that impact uptake of primary preventive strategies. In addition to that, the impact of education and longitudinal follow-up on attitudes towards primary care in women is being studied through our Well Woman Wednesday research project. We aim to develop a clear guide that primary care health specialists can use in order to improve uptake of primary and secondary preventive health measures in women.
