Males of all ages experience disproportionately higher rates for injury and premature death. Further, they lead more risky lifestyles and generally avoid preventive care. This presents a public health dilemma that affects not only males but also their families, workplaces, and communities. A combination of health psychology, gender studies, and health promotion models provides a critical analysis of these factors. They also offer a means to create more male-affirming and effective health care and to lessen gender health disparities.
After watching this broadcast participants will be able to:
- Describe the nature and scale of men's health concerns.
- Explain the importance of male psychology in male health behaviors
- Discuss more effective health communication skills in working with men.
- Utilize resources and best practices for men's health promotion.
