Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Linda Bergstrom, RN, MEd, PhD (East Carolina University)
Description: This is the second edition of a book whose audience is women's health care providers who assume responsibility for complete primary care, not just obstetric and gynecology services.
Purpose: This book is intended to be used as a handbook for primary care providers for women. It is also intended as a source for teaching advice for clients. This is useful for women's health care providers who studied primarily obstetrics and gynecology in their basic education program and are now faced with having to manage other kinds of primary care problems and issues.
Audience: The intended audience is providers already in practice, presumably nurses in advanced roles. The chapter contributors are nurse-practitioners, clinical nurse specialists, and nursing educators. I think this book could also be used for students learning advanced practice roles.
Features: There are very few illustrations and photographs, and all are in black and white. Most chapters have no illustrations. The references are up-to-date and pertinent, although some well-known nursing research has not been used, such as Sandelowski's work on infertility and Beck's work on postpartum depression. The organization of the clinical problem chapters is very helpful and makes information easy to locate.
Assessment: I wish this were two separate volumes — one about obstetrics and gynecology and one about other aspects of primary care. Students and practitioners could then buy only the book that would be most useful to them. For example, nurse-midwives would probably find the primary care section very useful, but are far more likely to use midwifery references like Varney and Lichtman for midwifery and gynecology content. Conversely, family nurse practitioners would probably find the obstetrics/gynecology section useful but may find the general section redundant. For all readers the chapters about physical disability and health care for lesbian women are excellent.
