Field of medicine: Gynecology and primary care.
Format: Softcover book and CD-ROM.
Audience: Primary care clinicians who care for female patients.
Purpose: To provide primary care clinicians with an overview of basic gynecology and clinical issues related to the care of female patients and to assist in furthering their knowledge in areas of particular interest.
Content: The book surveys the broad range of clinical issues commonly encountered in the provision of primary care to female patients. With chapters contributed by women's health experts, the book strives to balance concise review and instruction in clinical management of gynecologic conditions while providing enough referenced detail for readers interested in investigating subjects in depth. Updated from the 2002 first edition, the book covers the same 22 subject areas—from the gynecologic examination to lesbian health issues—and generally uses a clinical approach, including history, physical, diagnosis, and treatment, while referencing evidence-based support when available.
