Description

This book covers the psychological conditions associated with the many phases of a woman's lifespan: the menarche; the menstrual cycle; infertility; pregnancy and the puerperium; and menopause and perimenopause. Issues such as eating disorders, substance misuse and other disorders are also addressed. For each condition, the nature and extent of the condition, detection or diagnosis, the pharmacological and psychosocial interventions available, and the importance of referral and co-working with multidisciplinary teams are covered. The book is primarily designed to provide a comprehensive summary for candidates preparing for the Part 2 MRCOG examination, and as such covers the RCOG curriculum for psychological disorders. It is also a valuable guide for all healthcare professionals needing a clearer understanding of this important area.show more
