520    The different research fields - gerontology, gender and 
       health - have generated different views, knowledge and 
       foci on ageing, health and gender. It is now necessary to 
       integrate these aspects into research, policy and 
       practice. The objective of this book is to provide an 
       overview of gender, health and ageing. Important 
       theoretical concepts, such as life course and 
       "Lebenslagen" in old age, or differences in men's health, 
       are introduced. It is increasingly important to build a 
       European basis of knowledge, to conduct discussions on 
       European research findings, and to develop European 
       research frameworks. In this volume, central theoretical 
       debates on gender impacts on life course and old-age 
       health, and vital issues of health research in the context
       of gender and old age are introduced. Specific aspects, 
       such as the impact of gender and age on cardiovascular 
       health, elder abuse and mental health, or care between 
       gender relations, gender roles and gender constructs, are 
       pointed out. Special attention is given to the impact of 
       social, political and economic change in different New EU 
       Member States, like Hungary, Poland and Slovenia.
