Lecture Notes: Obstetrics and Gynaecology, 3rd Edition
November 2008, Wiley-Blackwell
Starting with a section on basic science, the text is divided into six sections that explain female health needs and their management from the early years to old age. The self-assessment section is now a separate chapter, and includes Extended Matching Questions (EMQs), scenarios for practical history taking for the Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) and Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs).
Part 1 looks at female reproductive anatomy and physiology.
Part 2 covers the puberty and menstrual problems of young women, sub-fertility, pregnancy prevention, and sexual problems.
Part 3 examines the reproductive years including pregnancy and childbirth.
Part 4 covers the mature woman including menstrual problems of the older woman and pelvic pain.
Part 5 discusses the older woman including the menopause, incontinence and malignancy including breast cancer.
Part 6 demonstrates the importance of public health statistics on the provision of services in obstetrics and gynaecology.
Now in two-colour throughout, with a new colour plate section, Lecture Notes: Obstetrics and Gynaecology covers the core material needed for O&G courses, written specifically for medical students, nursing students, junior doctors on the Foundation Programme and the first two years of specialist training, midwives, and GPs.
