Rezensionen
"The author is to be especially commended for bringing together a number of resources for improving health and health care research. One chapter draws on published studies on topics such as diabetes and breast cancer to assess whether the variables of race, ethnicity, and sex used were sufficient to warrant the conclusions. Another chapter identifies several instruments designed by experts to capture the racial, ethnic, and gender diversity in a population under study. Throughout, hundreds of relevant references are provided." Marian E. Gornick, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (Retired), Baltimore, MD (The New England Journal of Medicine, 356:12, 2007)
