3A. History

The POG-approach not only studies historical and societal influences on womens health(care) but also reflects these developments. In the sixties and seventies of the 20th centrury, within ISPOG much attention was given to the political dimension of health care, e.g. by focussing on womens liberation. Much attention nowadays is on the influence of sexe on womens health problems, as mediated by differences in brains, hormones and genes. This political dimension is clearly reflected in the way the patient-physician relationship is 'shaped' which means how it's procaticed and how it is taught. In order to demonstrate the importance and nature of this close relationship between political and societal influences and (womens) health care, we provide an historic overview of patient education in medical consultations in practice as wel as in the medical curricula (Wouda, 2014)
