Track 01- Medical Sociology and Illness

Medical sociology is the study of the societal dimensions of health and medicine and it provides an analytical framework for understanding the social contexts of health, illness and health care. Central topics include the subjective experience of health and illness, political, economic and environmental circumstances fostering ill health. Illness is a particular abnormal condition, a disorder of a structure or function, that affects part or all of an organism.

Central topics include the subjective experience of health and illness, political, economic and environmental circumstances fostering ill health. This field draws on traditional sociological issues and contributes to them through reformulations of such basic concepts as social systems and institutions, professionalism, social work and social change, and social interaction and negotiation. The field is concerned with basic social science research and its implications for public policy and practice.

Public health refers to all organized measures (whether public or private) to prevent disease, promote health, and prolong life among the population as a whole. Its activities aim to provide conditions in which people can be healthy and focus on entire populations, not on individual patients or diseases.

Track 12- Medical Sociology and Gender

Gender is an important dimension of social life which intersects with others in social class, ethnicity and age. Gender and social relationships affects the health. Health experiences of women are different from those of men.  The cultural and religious norms of a society have a profound influence on roles, attitudes, and behaviour of men and women within the society. Gender inequality is most common in women dealing with poverty. The study of gender and development has become a broad field that involves politicians, economists, and human rights activists. Gender and Development, particularly women empowerment, includes a broader view of the effects of development on gender including economic, political, and social issues.Medical SociologistsSocial Science ResearchersSocial WorkersSociologists are the key persons in healthcare industry.

Track 13- Medical Sociology and Sociological Theory

The relation between medical sociology and sociological theory is crucial to the sub discipline. Theory is usually distinguishes research in medical sociology from socially oriented studies like public health and health services research. Sociological theory allows medical sociology to remain unique among the health-related social and behavioural sciences. Medical Sociology was intended to help solve a clinical problem, rather than develop theory.

Social determinants of health are the social and economic conditions and their distribution among the population that influence individual and group differences health status. Social determinants of health include social gradients, stress, early childhood development, social exclusion, unemployment, food insecurity, housing, availability of healthy food and disability. The social determinants in Canada and the USA are clearly well below the standards seen in other developed nations in terms of quality and equitable distribution. Medical SociologistsSocial Science ResearchersSocial WorkersSociologists plays major role in this aspect.

Track 14- Medical Sociology and Social Work

The practice of advocating for individuals and communities is social work. Social work plays a major role in medical sociology in the form of medical social workers. Medical social workers deal with the emotional, social and financial needs that frequently accompany with healthcare issues. They generally work in medical and surgical hospitals. They perform duties like new patient admissions, discharges and following up on aftercare plans. Medical SociologistsSocial Science ResearchersSocial WorkersSociologists are mainly involves in social work.

Track 15- Medical Sociology and Pain

Pain is a distressing feeling often caused by intense or damaging stimuli, such as stubbing a toe, burning a finger, putting alcohol on a cut, and bumping the funny bone. Pain motivates the individual to withdraw from damaging situations, to protect a damaged body part while it heals, and to avoid similar experiences in the future.

Track 16- Medical Sociology and Race

Race is a group of people who share similar and distinctive physical characteristics. There is a relationship between individual health and one’s race and ethnicity. Health disparities are seen among different racial and ethnic groups. The race-conflict approach is a sociological perspective that looks at disparity and tension between people of different racial and ethnic groups. It's a way of viewing and studying people that focus on racial inequality and conflict. There is a lot of difference between whites and blacks in America. White Americans earn a high level of income, obtains advanced educational degrees, have better access to quality healthcare and live longer than American racial minorities. The injustices against black and minority groups are very high in some of the developed countries.

Track 17- Medical Sociology and Ethnicity

An Ethnicity is a category of people identify with each other based on common social, cultural or national experiences. Ethnicity is often assumed to be the cultural unity of a group, often based on language and tradition. It is primarily an inherited status. There is a relationship between health of an individual and race and ethnicity. Health disparities are seen among different racial and ethnic groups. Health disparities, which include variations in life expectancy and prevalence of disease, due to the differences in health conditions across various ethnic populations that can be attributed to inequalities in living environment and access to healthcare may also play a role.

Track 18- Medical Sociology and Sick Role

Sick Role the role played by a person who has defined himself or herself as ill, with or without validation of the role by health care providers or family members. Adoption of the sick role changes the behavioral expectations of others toward sick persons. They are exempted from normal social responsibilities and not held responsible for the condition; they are obliged to “want to get well” and to seek competent medical help. The sick role also involves behavioral changes, including increased attention to the body and bodily functions, regression (increase in dependent behavior), narrowing of interests, and emotional overreactions.
