Updated NPWH Research Priorities

The NPWH Research Committee has announced the 2021-2026 research agenda which describes clinical research priorities for women's health care in primary care settings as well as women's health specialty practices. The NPWH Board of Directors voted at the November 2021 meeting to adopt these priorities. Each research priority reflects timely issues in health care that WHNPs are facing. Research priorities for 2021-2026 include:

  • Structural racism
  • Inclusivity, diversity, and health equity
  • Well woman care across the lifespan
  • Substance use/misuse
  • Maternal morbidity/mortality
  • LGBTQ health care
  • Technology/telehealth in women's health

  • Genetics/genomics
