Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0192627503, Paperback)

This book, written for all members of the primary health care team, covers all aspects of women's health care. The text has been completely revised and updated from previous editions - and several new chapters added. The writing style is straightforward and to the point, and packed with readily accessible information and advice. The most common aspects of women's health care covered: menstrual problems, menopause, contraception, vaginal discharge, incontinence, unwanted pregnancy, endometriosis (expanded to include chronic pelvic pain and its management), cervical screening, breast cancer (updated with new sections on genetics and using case histories as examples), and sexual and emotional problems - with chapters written by experts in their field. New chapters on: health promotion (written by a practice nurse) includes audit and comprehensive plans for promoting women's health; the primary/secondary care interface (looking at hospital referrals, how and why they vary and patient involvement in decision-making); subfertility (contains advice on how to investigate couples, as well as the latest information on IVF treatment); eating disorders (includes a practical step-by-step guide for treatment); complementary therapies.
