The first resource to focus on pediatric and adolescent gynecology from the perspective of frontline health care providers
This one-of-a-kind, quick-access guide for nurses delivers current patient assessment and management information for the specialized field of pediatric and adolescent gynecology (PAG). Underscoring the need to consider the unique questions and concerns of the younger population as distinct from those of adults, this authoritative resource addresses a multitude of common PAG patient questions and chief complaints, including acute and chronic conditions and commonly prescribed medications and their potential side effects.
Helping to foster sound decision-making in triage settings, chapters highlight red flags to consider. They include a list of pertinent questions to ask the patient, provide assessment directives, recommend appropriate interventions and/or delegation as needed, and describe commonly prescribed medications. Chapters also present considerations for special populations, particularly those who may be at a higher risk for gynecologic problems, medication side effects, and/or medication interactions. To facilitate ease of use, this guide is organized into chapters based on medication or chief complaint. Appendices deliver useful templates for effective telephone encounters and documentation, home care instructions post-procedure, a supply checklist for office treatments, administration and follow-up care for vaccines and injections, at-home medication instructions, and more.
