    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The aim of this study was to synthesize qualitative data on men's experiences of coronary heart disease (CHD). The authors searched for qualitative papers published before January 2007 in MEDLINE, EMBASE, British Nursing Index, CINAHL, PsychINFO and Web of Knowledge and used thematic analysis to synthesize findings. They found 136 studies that collected data on men's experiences of CHD. Only 27 studies took a gendered approach and only two aimed to investigate men's gendered experiences of CHD.
