The Textbook of Obstetrics and Gynaecology: a life course approach (PDF) is the latest edition of the Dutch Textbook Obstetrie en Gynaecologie; de voortplanting van de mens; which has been the leading handbook in Dutch medical and midwifery schools since 1993.
In this current edition; for the first time; a life course approach to women’s health is applied to the clinical practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Life is considered a continuum ‘from the cradle to the grave’; where each life stage affects the individual’s wellbeing and health and that of future generations. This approach in obstetric and gynaecological patient care provides a path towards healthy ageing; with specific attention for lifestyle; prevention and social context. By managing not only disease; but also the health of the population; women’s healthcare providers will deliver future care in a much more multidisciplinary fashion.
The etextbook’s structure and content have been completely revised and rewritten according to the life course approach; and the volume has been considerably condensed by an outstanding team of authors. The illustrative material has also been renewed; and now includes 3D video animations and films of 5 surgical procedures in the ebook version.
The etextbook should serve as a reference not only for midwifery and medical students but also for gynecologists in training and other clinicians who have the privilege of caring for women and their families; from the earliest moments in life onwards.
