Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Noreen K. Payonk, MSN, CNM (National Naval Medical Center Bethesda)
Description: This sixth edition of a guide for advanced practice nurses who manage common gynecologic conditions features updated material for client teaching, current medication treatment regimens, an updated bibliography, and new information on abuse assessment.
Purpose: The book is intended as a guide for nursing management of the common gynecological conditions patients present within community-based settings. The authors meet their objectives in this well-organized, informative handbook.
Audience: Even though the target audience for this spiral bound handbook is the advanced practice nurse, physician's assistants, medical students, and residents in family practice and obstetrics/gynecology would also find it a valuable reference.
Features: The handbook includes well organized topics in an outline format that remains consistent throughout. The book is divided into two parts. Part one is devoted to specific protocols, thoroughly covering topics such as: methods of family planning; vaginal discharge, vaginitis, and sexually transmitted diseases; menstrual disorders; miscellaneous gynecologic aberrations; and peri- and post-menopause. Part two consists of appendixes, including patient teaching tools and samples of consent forms. The table of contents and index are well organized and complete. The bibliography is extensive and current.
Assessment: I shared this handbook with several of my advanced practice nurse colleagues and they all stated it was one of the most complete handbooks for gynecologic care they have seen. They were impressed with the complete medication treatment regimens that included recommendations for pregnant clients. Overall, this is an outstanding resource that would be an excellent addition to the libraries of nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, physician's assistants, and resident physicians.

The book contains community-based nurse practitioner protocols and patient education materials to be used in the management of common gynecologic conditions. It is a new edition that contains an updated bibliography and new protocols on postcoital contraception, Depo-Provera, chronic pelvic pain, abdominal pain, pelvic mass, endometrial biopsy, and scabies. New patient education materials are also included. The purpose is to provide current protocols for community-based nurse practitioner practice related to common gynecologic problems. It is useful because many states now require that nurse practitioners practice under written protocols. These protocols could be easily modified or used as written. The book is intended to be used by nurse practitioners who manage common gynecologic problems of women. Women's health, adult, and family nurse practitioners may find this book particularly useful. Several sections would be useful to gerontology nurse practitioners as well. Few illustrations are used, but the book is not underillustrated because it is not meant to be a textbook. The references have been updated and appear current and pertinent. The book is attractive and easy to read. The oral contraceptive protocol contains useful tables on headache evaluation, drug interactions, and formulation and dosage of particular pills, including pills containing the newer progestins. A large section of patient education materials is included and may be copied for clients without copyright infringement. This protocol book would be useful to any nurse practitioner working extensively with women. The revised edition, with all of its new information, warrants replacement of an older edition.The primary weakness of the book is in the reading level of the patient education material. Most of it is written at the college level and could not be understood by clients in many settings without significant modification.
