This empirically-grounded volume breaks new ground by asking how our understandings of gender can be informed by exploring the socio-technical relations of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in health care and, conversely, by asking how far an appreciation of the ways in which gender works can inform and improve our understanding of how ICTs are being developed, implemented, and used in health care contexts.
