 The book is designed to be a clear accessible guide to women’s health. The aims of the book are as follows:

  • To examine women's health issues as they present in general practice
  • To provide GPs with information relevant to their practice that extends upon that provided in "undergraduate" texts
  • To provide evidence based information regarding women's health to GPs
  • To give GPs tips and examples of useful approaches when undertaking histories, examining and managing women's health problems.
  • To examine current controversies in women's health


"... this is an authoritative and comprehensive reference for new GPs as well as experienced practitioners wanting to
update or check the latest evidence." MJA (Volume 194 Number 9), 2 May 2011

"Registrars starting in practice and studying for their exams ignore this text at their peril! The layout is educationally
sound, with learning objectives, case studies and key points. The chapters are extensively referenced. Mazza also uses many tables, photographs and helpful diagrams (although some of these could be larger)." MJA (Volume 194 Number 9), 2 May 2011
