About this book


This book provides primary care physicians and their medical teams with the detailed information they need to offer a full range of women’s health procedures to their patients. Many primary care providers offer women’s health procedures in an office setting for a variety of reasons, from the value placed on continuity of care to the lack of access to specialty care that patients may experience in rural areas. Each chapter in this book is written by a primary care physician and outlines one women’s health procedure and its background information, indications, contraindications, complications, equipment, procedure steps, an office note, patient instructions and a patient handout. Tricks, helpful hints, key points, discussion questions, algorithms, and a wealth of illustrations are included through the book. This second edition is fully updated with the latest procedures and guidelines, ICD 10 coding information, and three new chapters on population health, contraceptive choice, and insertable contraceptive removal. Primary Care Procedures in Women’s Health, Second Edition, is an ideal reference for all providers—including family physicians, general internists, residents, nurse practitioners, nurse midwives and physicians assistants—to be competent and comfortable performing a spectrum of office-based, women’s health procedures.
