A Handbook of Men’s Health is more than a ready reference for anyone working in public health, health promotion and general clinical practice. The chapters follow through each stage of life, from youth to maturity, so that readers can quickly find the information they need.

Detailed information on procedures and investigations encourages the development of competencies such as:
• assessing men’s physical and mental health
• identifying men’s information needs
• directing men to supportive organisations and resources
• a chapter on the law and ethics covering the rights of same-sex couples, men’s access to children, anti-discrimination legislation, sexual abuse of males and infertility treatment


"This is an essential tool for all nurses specialising in men's health or dealing with male patients." Nursing Standard

'This is an excellent insight into the problems, large and small, that affect men's wellbeing. Tom Laws has put together an invaluable source of reassurance and help.'
Sue Shaw, Staff Nurse, Salisbury; Nursing Standard, September 2006

'This handbook is an ideal reference for those in public heath, health promotion and general practise. The chapters follow through each stage of life, from youth to maturity, allowing readers to quickly find the information that they need." e male, Australian Mens Helath E Bulletin.

'The strength of this work lies in the range of statistics presented and these, along with policy, legal and practical issues, have been collated from three major countries; the UK, US, and Australia. Collectively, this international focus means that few gaps or uncertainties are left in the information contained in the book... I think for nurses or other health professionals that are engaged with the bio-medical aspects of assessing and treating men's physical health concerns, this would provide a useful ready reference guide.'
Steve Robertson, Senior research fellow, University of Central Lancashire, UK
