"The best guidelines book available. It is great for NPs of any specialty, as well as CNMs, PAs, and other health professionals caring for women. This book is concise and well organized making it extremely easy to find information quickly. It gives direct and clear information about gynecological care for women throughout the age span. I have used numerous editions of this book for years and it is my number one recommendation for NP students and experienced NPs looking for the best guidelines book on the market. To care for women a practitioner must understand the diversity and complexity of their lives and how these impact their wellness; this book does a remarkable job reflecting this."
—Holly B. Fontenot, RNC, MS, WHNP, SANE,
Clinical Instructor, William F. Connell School of Nursing, Boston College

Now in its ninth edition, the newest revision and update of this standard work is designed to be used as a guide for nursing management of the common gynecological conditions of women, for use particularly in community-based or ambulatory settings. Written by two full-time nurse practitioners involved in women's health, and a teacher of women's health nursing, the book continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of the women's health community. Unique to the ninth edition is a new, easy-to-use outline format, the latest STD guidelines from CDC, an update of Bethesda 2001 Terminology for Papanicolaou Smears, expanded and updated coverage of hormones and contraceptives, expanded coverage of weight management and obesity and smoking cessation, and extensive patient education hand-outs contained in an 86 page appendix that includes numerous sample clinical forms and screening tools while eliminating out-of-date material and incorporating other material into the topical chapters.

Relying on evidence-based practice guidelines, the ninth edition includes:

• Contraception, infertility, and preconception care
• Breast conditions
• Assessment for abuse and violence
• Menstrual disorders and perimenopausal and postmenopausal problems
• Smoking cessation and weight maintenance
• Complementary and alternative therapies, and more

This classic book remains an essential addition to the bookshelf of every women's health practitioner.
