Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Marianne H. Hutti, DNS, RNC, OGNP (University of Louisville School of Nursing)
Description: This book is a comprehensive reference designed to meet the knowledge needs of care providers of women and children with HIV infection. It uses a multidisciplinary perspective spanning the course of the disease from early to late stages.
Purpose: The book was written to fill the void in the literature by addressing the comprehensive healthcare needs of women and children with HIV infection.
Audience: It is written for all healthcare professionals and students who care for women and children with HIV infection: physicians, nurse practitioners and nurse midwives, nurses, social workers, counselors, and chaplains.
Features: The book is attractive and soft covered, with easy to read type and several useful tables and some black-and-white illustrations. The range of topics relevant to women and children with HIV infection is comprehensive and includes epidemiology, care issues, reproductive/pregnancy concerns, counseling issues, family needs, cultural issues, HIV testing, complimentary therapies, education and prevention. It also examines ethical, legal, and policy issues, continuity of care, and caring for the caregiver.
Assessment: This is a unique, sensitive, and comprehensive reference that is needed now and will probably become even more necessary as the incidence of HIV infection in women and children increases. It provides a single source of clinically useful information for primary care providers, and it is highly recommended for purchase.
