About this item

In the very first text of its kind, Women at War brings together all the available information and experience on Women's health and mental health under one cover to enlighten the practitioners caring for them. 2.5 million US service members have deployed since September 11th, 2001 to the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; with over 300,000 of these soldiers being women. While the available information on the medical and mental health needs of women in deployment and combat is sparse and hard to find, this new volume brings together the literature that exists on female active duty service members and veterans.Women at War reviews topics such as epidemiology, deployment health, reproductive and genitourinary issues, mothering, sexuality, PTSD and other psychological effects of war, wounds and disability, intimate partner violence, sexual assault and suicide. It provides health care providers with insight that can help treat and prevent illness in the female military population by bringing together researchers, clinicians and service member experience and knowledge and presents the information in a practical, actionable format. It also highlights areas where data is lacking and more study is demanded.
