About the Authors
  • This comprehensive review of the emotive and often controversial topic of abortion provides clinicians with a multidisciplinary focus on abortion services, discussing clinical topics in their sociological, legal and ethical context. It is particularly timely as novel methods of service delivery make this vital resource more accessible, allowing abortion to be performed in community settings. Topics include medical and surgical methods of abortion, ultrasound scanning, pain control, complications, and abortion in women with medical conditions, as well as ethics, stigma, and human rights. Written by leading authorities in their subject areas, Abortion Care is essential reading for medical and nursing specialists and forms a useful resource in the delivery of graduate courses in the fields of obstetrics and gynaecology and sexual and reproductive healthcare. It is also of interest to professionals involved in planning, delivering and managing women's health services, including counsellors, service managers and public health specialists.

    • Assembles the main evidence to date on abortion care from a global perspective, to contribute to improved effectiveness and safety of treatment for women
    • Addresses the need for working across boundaries of various disciplines in the approach to abortion provision
    • Contains helpful descriptions and contact information of a wide variety of women's health organisations

    Reviews & endorsements

    'Rowlands has compiled an informative text that is highly readable yet fully referenced. I hope this book is read by all health care professionals working in the field of sexual and reproductive care and that it takes pride of place in the gynaecology section of all libraries.'
