Assessing Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Health Sana Loue, Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland Where there are patients, clients, or study participants, there are data. And when data involve personal variables of race, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexual orientation, questions of relevance and marginalization often arise. Assessing Race, Ethnicity, and Gender in Health brings needed clarity to the debate by identifying the ethical issues as well as the technical challenges inherent in measuring these elusive concepts. Sana Loue expands on her work begun in Gender, Ethnicity, and Health Research by paralleling the evolution of racial and sexual categories with the development of health research. Her review of the literature clearly explains when and why the use of classification systems may be both clinically and morally appropriate. In addition, Loue provides a salient guide to assessment tools currently used in measuring racial and sexual constructs, identity, and experience. Overview of categories in their sociopolitical context Self-definition vs. definition by others: methodological considerations Review of the overlapping roles of race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation in health, health care, and health care disparities Selected measures for assessing ethnicity, ethnic identification, and levels of acculturation Suggested dimensions for assessing sexual orientation Current diagnostic criteria for gender identity disorder Given the prevalence of ethnic- and gender-based data collection throughout the health and mental health fields, this book{u2019}s usefulness is not limited to the research community.

Case studies in forensic epidemiology by Sana Loue( Book )

16 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 134 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The discipline of epidemiology provides a methodology for perceiving the world and relating to the communities whose health and disease patterns need to be understood. Forensic epidemiology extends our understanding to community's injuries and those alleged to be responsible. This much needed resource focuses on the use of the epidemiology in the legal context, using case studies to illustrate the issues raised. This work includes discussion of: - epidemiology in the courtroom; - epidemiology, legislation and rulemaking; - law, epidemiology and community organization and advocacy; - epidemiology, law and social context. This text challenges the boundaries about what epidemiology is and how it is to be used to make a contribution to the groups it studies. In turn, a more complete understanding of the populations, diseases and the systems that underlie and shape the research is reached. This book will be of value to the student studying in public health, environmental health and medical programs, law students as well as professional researchers."--Publisher description (LoC)

Sexualities and identities of minority women by Sana Loue( Book )

16 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This singular volume addresses the issues confronting minority women of diverse sexual orientations (lesbian, bisexual, transgender, transsexual, and questioning) - challenges that often diverge substantially from those of other women of color, and from those affecting minority men who have sex with men. Contributions from scholars, public health professionals, and members of the community reveal a wide range of developmental, relational, political, and legal concerns that have been given scant attention in either the minority or the sexual minority literature. From these varied perspectives, experiences of stigma and unity, isolation and hope, are discussed with rare sensitivity and insight."--Jacket
