A general lack of awareness of how heart disease and stroke present differently in women and men is compounded by knowledge gaps among health professionals, leading to a predominantly male model of research and care. In response, Heart & Stroke – with support from Health Canada – has developed the Advancing Women’s Heart Health Project.
Through leadership, research, partnership, and capacity building, this project aims to change the way in which heart health research is funded, conducted, and applied in Canada so that it accounts for gender and racial disparities and redresses health inequities. SRDC has been hired to develop a logic model and frameworks for performance measurement and evaluation, as well as data collection tools and an analysis plan for this initiative.
