About this item
This book fills a major gap in the literature by providing comprehensive guidelines for the care of male patients across the lifecycle and across settings. Provisions for healthcare delivery for men are complicated and often lacking in primary care. Devoted solely to improving men’s health, this book will thus serve as an accessible, practical reference for clinicians treating these patients. It focuses on psychosocial challenges of men in approaching and obtaining healthcare, both acute and chronic medical and psychological diseases, and current evidence-based guidelines for wellness and health maintenance. Chapters include topics such as the problem of help seeking, preventative services, sexual dysfunction, cardiovascular health, prostate cancer screening, testosterone deficiency, and more. Primary care clinicians in family medicine, internal medicine, adolescent medicine, and students of all of these programs will find this volume to be an invaluable resource for providing care for male patients.
