Written for nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse midwives, and other primary care providers, this new edition of Advanced Health Assessment of Women, continues to deliver the clinical skills required to care for the unique healthcare needs of women.

Each technique and procedure outlined contains detailed descriptions, strategies for patient preparation, and recommended follow up, accompanied by a comprehensive list of equipment. In this new edition, all content has been reviewed and expanded to reflect the most updated evidence-based clinical practice guidelines.
