Published on Monday, June 14, 2021 by Céline Guilleux

Summary

The aim of this thesis is to examine, from an intersectional perspective, the factors that may help to explain the excess mortality of women in the field of cardiovascular diseases, based on the study of the French Constances cohort and the activity data of a Parisian hospital. The aim will be to uncover the social and professional logics that favour the perception of symptoms, access to care, and differentiated forms of medical care and treatment follow-up. At the interface of sociological and demographic analysis, the research will be based on quantitative analyses. A qualitative component may be included. It will have to interact with the qualitative and quantitative research conducted within the Gendhi project.
