Authoritative coverage is offered of the biological, clinical, laboratory, psychosocial, and public-health aspects of sexual health medicine. A feature of the book is its holistic approach, with the client seen as a whole person, rather than simply the owner of a set of malfunctioning genitalia. An underlying message is that the practice of sexual health medicine must be evidence-based, scientific, and clinically sound, but also characterised by acceptance, tolerance, good humour and empathy.
Medical students, nurses, junior hospital doctors, general practitioners, trainee sexual health physicians, and specialists in allied fields, will continue to find the book of value.
