State of the art, opinions, challenges from the 2nd Italian National Congress on Gender Medicine (Padua, Italy, October 21st-23rd, 2010). In the meeting scientists, clinicians, health economy and organizations experts convened to discuss basic and clinical research devoted to better understand the gender specific issues in clinical management of Chronic Pain, Dementia, Alzheimer Disease, Osteoporosis and Autoimmune Diseases.
The meeting was designed to look for an answer to the many questions in Gender Medicine which remain still open. The faculty provided answers to many questions, although some of the unanswered ones are waiting for more satisfying answers. To help the readers, a selection of the presented slides has been endowed in a slide library which is linked to every Q/A group.
Gender Medicine is still a book with many pages to be read and understood.
