Women's Health: A Primary Care Clinical Guide is an easy-to-reference handbook for women's health. It meets the needs of both students and providers who offer women more than basic reproductive health care. Building on the success of the previous edition, the authors cover traditional reproductive and gynecologic topics, as well as health issues in general medical, psychosocial, developmental and political realms.

The 5th Edition has been updated with the latest practice standards. It has a new chapter on substance use disorders and expanded coverage of complementary therapies and issues affecting lesbian, bisexual and transgender populations. Learning objectives have been added for each chapter, to align the content with clinical applications.
