In this study like the others above, opposite sex dyads were the least patient-centred, the least calm, and in which doctors are rated the worst. Strikingly, an important characteristic of female doctors and male patient dyads is that male patients use them as an opportunity to address their emotional agenda more than they do if the doctor is male. Similar to the other studies, in female to female dyads, there is more psychosocial talk with the most encouraging communication style, relative ease in interactions, and the longest consultations in which more talk occurs than in any other dyad combination. However, is where the more biomedical talk about medical and therapeutic issues is most present (Sandhu et al.
Also, because they are believed to be the chosen ones by spiritual calling, the Hmong are less likely to question or blame them. On the other hand, given their long years of education, residency, and training, western medicine doctors are expected to successfully treat most of their patients. Because of this expectation, if something were to go wrong, it often results in the blame of the doctor, personal attacks, or even legal action. The typical biological causes of health problems, according to western medicine, make illnesses seem more controllable, in comparison to the abstract spiritual causes of the Hmong. This is what gives rise to the difference in patient reaction to failed medical
These factors are known as the Social Determinants of health. “The social determinants of health are the conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age, including the health system” (WHO). Dalgren & Whitehead (1991) image of the social determinants of health aims to show the relationship between the person, their environment and their health. The modifiable factors, people’s age, gender and race lie in the centre surrounded by non modifiable factors like profession, housing, education and public policy. There is a direct relationship between people’s environment and their health, e.g. people who live in damp housing have a higher incidence of respiratory health problems (Farell et al.
Masculinity is slowing killing men; with all the pressure and expectations that man have to be a certain image, this can cause many negative effects which can lead to many dangerous and serious situations. Due to all these expectations many bad habits can form such as alcoholism, violence and workaholism. This peer pressure can cause men to have depression or engage in many risky activities that will effect there life in many negative ways, such as injuring themselves. In the article it states that “little boys are, in fact, slightly more sensitive and expressive than little girls” (Kali Holloway). Even though

Due to this conclusion, the past society still sees women as the weaker sex. Scientifically, to an extent, this is correct due to the composition of the different body structures. It is well known that to become a police officer one must go through a series of tests that include a physical exam. What is less known is that men and women have to reach different requirements. Less pushups, less pull-ups, and shorter mile time is expected for women.
Therefore, the criminal justice system is more assuasive towards women thus leading to female crimes being disregarded and being less likely to show up in official statistics. This creates an invalid image that exaggerates the level of gender differences in crime. There is evidence to support this claim. Results from studies
While it is obvious that men are not immune to pain or free from experiencing trauma, a National Institution Drug Abuse (NIDA) report on prescription-drug abuse and addiction stated that studies indicate that: “women were more likely than men to be prescribed an abuse-prone prescription drug, particularly anti-anxiety drugs—in some cases 48 percent more likely (Bardhi, Flutura). Again, as aforementioned genderization of men and women greatly impacts who seeks help for their mental ailments. Once an individual begins taking a prescription medication for PTSD and or associated disorders it is difficult for them to stop taking the medication; additionally it is extremely difficult for a physician to determine when an individual no longer needs said medications; judging ones level of physical and mental pain is near impossible. However, government and medical/pharmaceutical professionals are clear that a three stage process is necessary for "medical use” of prescription drugs to occur: a) A physician diagnoses and provides a written prescription for specific pills and dosage unit(s), b) The patient/consumer purchases such pills from a legitimate pharmacy, and then c) Swallows the pills on a schedule as specifically directed by the physician. Using this definition, if any element of this 3-stage process is absent then such consumption would be

Elijah Mascorro Livesey English 101 24 April 2017 Poverty and Medical Treatment There is no fundamental relationship between poverty and medical treatment from the look of an average person. In fact, the two factors of life might be way different from each other except for the simple fact that they both relate to human life in one way or another. As poverty concerns the status of life or the living conditions of the people, medical treatment might be referred to as the attempts made to improve certain health conditions (Peters et al. 164). However, scientific researchers have found out a mutual respect between poverty and medical treatment.

To conclude, health inequality is negatively affected by gender stereotypes. Gender stereotypes affect human behavior, and the difference in workplace become barriers to men and women. Women seem to be sicker because they are please to report the health problem, women will take risky behavior under beauty culture, and their work experience is inequality. Men seem to be death quicker due to their less- healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, although medical technology and government funding are improved, the patterns of health have not changed notably.
