Feminists Who Do: Bridging Insight to Practice in Comprehensive Women’s Health Care

Jamie P. Ross
Portland State University
A qualitative and quantitative understanding of disease variables in relation to local understandings and values is an important dimension that broadens traditional evidence-based medicine (EBM) and is necessary in order to navigate the social perspectives of policymakers. There are dimensions of this research that share the values and practices of feminist research. This paper offers an epistemological analysis of theory and practice that can provide more effective outcomes in women’s health. PATH (Policy Advisory Towards Health) for women, bridges the knowledge gap between research and direct service by providing translational support for community organizations’ legislative policy agendas.
