Description This recorded presentation from the EB 2017 Refresher Course features Todd Vanderah, PhD, of University of Arizona, who references multiple clinical and preclinical studies demonstrating differences in chronic pain, and that males and females may respond differently to common analgesics. Despite well-documented difference, however, the majority of these pains are being treated with the same treatments for males and females. This presentation will touch on these topics and the lack of education on pain in U.S. medical schools. Vanderah’s talk was one of four presentations in the 2017 Refresher Course on “Curricular Innovation in Sex and Gender Based Medical Physiology Education,” organized by the APS Education Committee.
