Comprehensive Women's Health

This course addresses issues throughout a woman's life span in the arena of gynecological well-being. It focuses on the development of a knowledge base that enables us to understand what well-being is for a woman and how this impacts on her health, physically, mentally, emotionally, and culturally. From this perspective we can develop appropriate education to maximize her ability to achieve and maintain her well-being. Topics include health maintenance, gynecologic screening, family planning, and sexuality. The course includes an overview of deviations from well-being that are within the scope of nurse-practitioner and nurse-midwife practice. Information is presented within the construct of the nurse-midwifery/nurse-practitioner management process, which allows for assessment and management of the normal, and intervention/collaboration for complex issues. Concurrent supervised clinical experiences enhance and ground this didactic experience.
