Teaching Materials on Women, Health and Healing.
Clarke, Adele, Ed.; And Others
Curriculum development in women's health has undergone a transformation over the past 15 years based on the availability of teaching resources. Today, the range of resources for curriculum development in women's health is more intimidating than elusive. While there has been a virtual explosion of both popular and scholarly research and writing in the many areas of women's health, there has been a dearth of materials on developing curricula in these areas. This volume is designed for use by faculty in undergraduate, graduate, and health professions and educational institutions who wish to initiate or expand their curriculum in women's health. The materials in this volume are largely edited versions of papers originally presented at three Summer Institutes on Women, Health, and Healing organized by the Women, Health and Healing Program of the University of California, San Francisco. The primary focus of these working papers on curriculum development in women's health studies is on the development and enhancement of curricula through the integration of social science perspectives on women's health, through the integration of minority women's health issues, and through addressing issues at the intersection of social science and clinical concerns.
