New Protocol Published: Impact of Systems of Oppression on DR Screening Among Women of Low Socioeconomic Status
Congratulations to our Health Technology Assessment and Network Analytics team, who collaborated on a recent research protocol: Impact of Intersecting Systems of Oppression on Diabetic Retinopathy Screening Among Those Who Identify as Women of Low Socioeconomic Status: Protocol for a Convergent Mixed Methods Study.
The protocol, whose lead author is Dr. Aleksandra Stanimirovic, was published in JMIR Research Protocols. It outlines the process that will be used to explore gender disparity in the provision of tele-retina program services for diabetic retinopathy screening in a cohort of women of low socioeconomic status (SES) receiving services in South Riverdale Community Health Centre (SRCHC) between 2014 and 2019.
This study is the first Ontario study to focus on diabetic retinopathy screening practices in women of low SES, with the aim to improve their health outcomes and revolutionize access to quality care.
