Women's Health Care

Edited by:


February 1995 | 760 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
This comprehensive handbook will provide nurses and other health-care professionals with a major new resource on women's health issues

The handbook opens with a presentation of vital demographics, examining women's health within specific age groups.

Next, the contributors deal with nursing and health-care practice, beginning with an examination of women's experiences as recipients of health care, and then moving on to establish frameworks for the practice and assessment of the healthy woman.

Chapters on health-care promotion for women address such topics as nutrition, exercise and fertility control in terms of current theory and research.

The handbook ends with an examination of the common health problems women experience such as violence, substance abuse, high-risk childbearing and reproductive surgery.
