Producing and Promoting Gender Equity in Health Care

The Department of Nursing and Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre hosted this year's first public nursing seminar on 5 March 2024.

Guest speaker Professor John Oliffe from the University of British Columbia discussed connections between, and challenges, for the social determinants of health and the sustainability of gender equity interventions. Showcasing visual methods, he used case study examples that included the use of digital story telling in endometriosis and photovoice for mobilising peer support in men’s suicide prevention.
