Spirit of Women HeartCaring
HeartCaring involves a three-prong approach to planning and implementation that includes hospitals, clinicians and consumers in an effort to increase gender-sensitive heart disease awareness.
The need for a gender-sensitive approach to cardiology is underscored by the growing body of research that reveals an under-diagnosis of heart disease in women, as well as variations in clinical indicators, symptoms and treatment regimens.
HeartCaring is administered by the Spirit of Women Hospital Network with educational support from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute.
