Monthly Virtual Collaboration Forum
Upcoming Session: Virtual Collaboration Forum – Gender & Chronic Pain – Women’s Experiences Through an Intersectional Lens
May 26 | 7:30PM MT – Speaker: Dr. Fiona Webster
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Recognize the difference between sex and gender
- Explain why and how gender matters in the context of chronic pain
- Apply intersectionality to women’s experiences of chronic pain
- Critically reflect on the experiences of women who have experienced gendered aspects of pain
Fiona Webster is a critical sociologist and Associate Professor in the Labatt Family School of Nursing at Western University and holds a cross appointment with the Institute of Health Policy Management and Evaluation, University of Toronto, where she is also an Academic Fellow with the Centre for Critical Qualitative Health Research (CQ). She has successfully led many Tri-Council funded, interdisciplinary research teams with a particular focus on applying sociological approaches to understanding and improving care, with a particular focus on chronic pain and marginalization. By turning a sociological eye to the challenges of providing chronic pain care within parameters currently delineated by the Canadian health care system, her aim is to identify structural and ideological components of contemporary health care that might be amenable to change.
Please Note: May 12 Collab Q&A – Trauma Informed Treatment Planning: The Tools & How to Use Them was cancelled. Stay tuned for future updates.
