Women's Health: Principles and Clinical Practice

Front Cover
Women's Health Principles and Clinical Practice is your practical guide and reference text to comprehensive women's health care. It provides a framework for approaching women at different stages of their lives including adolescence, menopause, and older womanhood. It addresses common conditions not traditionally addressed in specialty training and places a strong emphasis on preventive health. The text examines the care of women who have traditionally been invisible or ignored in clinical training, including lesbians and women with developmental disabilities. Newer areas such as the care of women at genetic risk for cancer are also examined. Also included are lists of organizations and web sites that provide up-to-date evidence-based information on the topics presented in the text.
