Summary "This is the only truly comprehensive advanced text for the assessment of women's health, written for such primary care providers as nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and certified nurse-midwives. It encompasses both foundational and cutting-edge physical and psychosocial information in a clear and concise outline format, and is unique in its presentation of more advanced techniques and procedures not addressed in standard graduate assessment texts. Keeping pace with the expanding scope of advanced practice, the third edition provides several completely new chapters authored by renowned specialists, expanded chapters, and updates. This includes new information on contraception, domestic violence, health history of special populations, lesbian health, evaluation of the pelvic floor, aging and menopause, bleeding irregularities, infertility, skin aesthetics, pelvic pain, and health guidelines."--Publisher's website.
