Gender and Health

Lead Research Organisation: University of Glasgow

Abstract

Gender structures opportunities and life chances, and recent decades have witnessed changes in male and female participation in roles, principally employment and the bearing, rearing and day-to-day care for children. Since these roles and associated resources might themselves be directly or indirectly health promoting or health damaging, there is a need for a more systematic analysis and review of existing evidence on gender differences in health to disentangle the influences of time and place, taking more explicit account of broad macro-economic factors. Examining health by gender thus offers the potential to identify important aetiological pathways between social structure and health, and to develop more effective interventions. Our aim is to examine whether, when and why various aspects of men and women's health are different so that we can identify possible ways to improve the health of men and women.

Technical Summary

It is often assumed that gender differences in health are inevitable and constant. However, current research is beginning to take a far more critical view of the links between gender and health. We are undertaking studies explicitly examining the patterning of various health indicators by gender, and the relationship between gendered constructions of identity and health and health behaviour, using a range of methods, with the aim of developing or contributing towards interventions which improve the health of men and women. This programme aims: to examine gender differences in various dimensions of health, taking into account different historical and cultural contexts; to examine acquired risks of ill health, particularly key health behaviours (smoking, alcohol consumption and obesity), and how these are distributed among and between men and women, and how they influence and are influenced by social constructions of gender (masculinities and femininities, and gender-related roles and attitudes). to examine the factors mediating men's and women's recognition, reporting, and experience of ill health, and help seeking behaviour; patterns of consultation in men and women with similar morbidity; gender and decisions to consult (or not); and to develop gender-sensitised interventions (where appropriate) to improve the health of men and women. A range of studies or reviews using different social scientific methods is involved, including: Primary and secondary analysis of quantitative data from studies in Social & Public Health Sciences Unit and national surveys (e.g. Twenty-07, Health Survey for Scotland, British Household Panel Survey) and routinely collected data (e.g. THIN) and international data. Gender and the experience of health and illness (qualitative studies, including primary data collection and analysis, and secondary analysis of existing qualitative data) Changing gender differences in health in childhood and adolescence. Illness experience among chronically ill men and women Men and women's views of masculinity and femininity, male/female identity and health Patterns of consultation and decisions to consult in men and women with similar symptoms or illnesses. Lay understandings of health. Patterns of health behaviours by gender, and whether these may vary geographically or by other social statuses. Gender role orientation and attitudes and alcohol consumption and smoking; ways in which health behaviours may be signifiers of gender. Exposure to health behaviours (smoking, alcohol consumption and illicit drug use) in films and health behaviours in adolescence in Scotland, and in comparison with other European countries. Media presentations of men and women and health and illness Randomised control trial of behavioural interventions to reduce obesity

Title Football Fans in Training Programme 
Description 12 week weight management and healthy living intervention delivered at professional football clubs to overweight and obese men from the general population 
IP Reference  
Protection Protection not required
Year Protection Granted 2013
Licensed No
Impact So far FFIT has been delivered to over 2000 men in Scotland. Results of the effectiveness (at 12 months post recruitment) and cost-effectiveness were published in learly 2104 in the Lancet (the world's first randomised controlled trial of a public health intervention to be delivered in a professional sports setting). GU are finalising copyright with SPFL Trust, and training materials for ongoing implementations via SPFL clubs and elsewhere are being developed with a GU Knowledge Exchange grant. We are developing new versions of the programme for delivery to men in professional Rugby clubs in the UK (and possibly New Zealand), and in professional football clubs in several European countries as part of a 6m Euro study of a FFIT-based approach to decreasing sedentary behaviour
 
Title Football Fans in Training (FFIT) 
Description FFIT is a gender-sensitised 12 week group-based weight management programme for men delivered through professional SPL football clubs. After extensive collaboration with a number of stakeholders over 3 years, this programme was first delivered to men in the SPL club that they support in Sept 2010. We obtained funding for an initial evaluation and for a full-scale evaluation using an RCT design (trial commenced August 2011. FFIT has won an internation award from the European Professional Football League (Best Practice Award in Social Responsibility category, 2010) and a national award for Health Provider of the Year (2011) from the Herald Society Awards. 
Type Preventative Intervention - Behavioural risk modification
Current Stage Of Development Early clinical assessment
Year Development Stage Completed 2010
Development Status Under active development/distribution
Clinical Trial? Yes
UKCRN/ISCTN Identifier ISRCTN32677491
Impact Programme development reported in Gray CM, Hunt K, Mutrie N, Anderson A, Leishman J, Delgarno L, Wyke S (2013). Football Fans in Training: the development and optimization of an intervention delivered through professional sports clubs to help men lose weight, become more active and adopt healthier eating habits. BMC Public Health 13, 232 (16 March 2013). This is currently BMC Public Health's 4th most viewed paper and on their 'Highly Accessed' list. Feasilibity results suggest programme is likely to deliver public health benefits, that a trial is feasible, and that we are attracting a high risk group of men (high BMI and waist/hip measurements) (Gray CM, Hunt K, Mutrie N, Anderson A, Treweek S, Wyke S (in press). Weight management for overweight and obese men delivered through professional football clubs: a pilot randomized trial. International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity). Feedback from participants is very positive (Hunt K, et al (2013). "You've got to walk before you run". Positive evaluations of a walking programme as part of a gender sensitised weight management programme delivered to men through professional football clubs. Heath Psychology, 32(1): 57-65). Eg these men say they would not have engaged in such a programme in a different setting; they have very high motivation for sustained behavioural change). Several papers pending and likely to be published early in 2014. Already attracted a lot of enquiries from people around the world, main effectiveness and cost-effectiveness paper currently under consideration following revisions with the Lancet. See also details under IP and grants for projects developing from this work.
