Abstract

Research in women's health has regained momentum with the recent release of several reports from various institutes and organizations. The Office of Research on Women's Health (ORWH) of the National Institutes of Health and the Institute of Medicine (IOM) both reported on women's health research. Within a year, Congress enacted the Affordable Care Act, stipulating support for clinical preventive services for women, prompting further reports focused on clinical care for women. These two research-dominant reports (NIH ORWH and the IOM) are the subject of this manuscript. The purpose is to outline and critically analyze the reports from a grounded nursing perspective and to propose a complementary and expanded agenda for furthering research in women's health. A separate manuscript analyzes and makes recommendations based on additional reports about clinical services and policies that will benefit the health status of women.
