It includes difficult-to-find information on how to locate key organs in obese women and how to handle patients who have undergone female genital mutilation. This handy guide also covers diagnostic skills and includes the Fast Facts in a Nutshell summary feature.

Key Features:

  • Provides a comprehensive, accessible, step-by-step review of conducting the GYN exam for novice and seasoned NPs
  • Covers diagnostic procedures including vaginal microscopy, how to obtain a vaginal and anal Pap smear, as well as samples for testing for STIs, and much more
