Do women get all the preventive services they should? How do women feel about the health care they get? Recently, a large, national survey was conducted by Louis Harris and Associates Inc. for the Commonwealth Fund to try to answer some of these questions about women's health care. The survey was done by telephone and more than 2,500 women and 1,000 men over 18 were questioned.The survey results make two clear points -- women are not getting all the preventive services they need, and women and their health-care providers often have communication problems.
