Women's Health: A Resource Guide for Nurses
Nurses can use this general women's health resource as a valuable tool for patient education! Looking for quick and accurate answers to women's health questions asked by patients with cancer and their families? This general women's health guide will provide you with information you can use to educate your patients. Presented in an easy-to-read and easy-to-reference question and answer style, Women's Health addresses commonly asked questions by female patients with cancer and their family members. While several chapters directly reference challenges related to oncology, the scope of this resource has a much broader base and includes general health issues such as fertility, nutrition, sexual health, psychosocial health, and even eating disorders, body art, and smoking cessation. Intended as a resource for patient education, nurses may also use this guide as a resource for personal health promotion.
