Gynaecology in the twenty-first century is much more than just a surgical speciality. The range of services and associated care has expanded rapidly in recent years reflecting the changing health needs of women. Many exciting developments have been initiated by nurses and professionals allied to medicine (PAMs). The chapters in Gynaecology: Changing Services for Changing Needs each focus on a main area of gynaecological care, providing a general overview of the issues involved as well as specific examples of how nurses and PAMs are making a difference. All of the contributors have used their interest and expertise in a specific field to develop a gynaecology service for women. The first chapter gives an overview of nurse-led assessment in gynaecology and is a natural introduction to the work covered by the following chapters. Topics are arranged roughly in the order they may be experienced as a woman matures, starting with sexual health problems, frequently associated with teenagers, and ending with the menopause and gynaecological oncology. However there is considerable overlap with, for example, more mature women now contracting sexually transmitted infections and an increase in gynaecology cancers among younger women. Gynaecology: Changing Services for Changing Needs will have a special appeal for all nurses and PAMs already working in gynaecology. It will motivate and encourage nurses to look at new ways of delivering care. However, anyone interested in women´s health in general will gain a useful overview of gynaecological problems and modern service provision.
