The role of the Genito–Urinary (GU) nurse practitioner/specialist is still relatively new, with many nurses working in sexual health undertaking roles which, until recently, were the domain of doctors.
Advanced Clinical Skills for GU Nurses has been developed to help nurses who are in nurse practitioner roles by supporting them to develop their advanced practice skills. The book will develop skills and knowledge that nurses will have acquired at staff nurse level.

Written by an experienced team of contributors, this practical book includes useful chapters on:

  • Taking a sexual history
  • Male and female genital examination
  • HIV pre and post test discussion
  • Health promotion and sexual health
  • Women s sexual health

Advanced Clinical Skills for GU Nurses is written in an engaging, easy–to–read style, enabling readers to develop skills and knowledge which until recently have been more in the medical domain. It will prove an invaluable resource for practice nurses and nurses working in family planning, health advisors, midwives and other nurse practitioners, such as those working in A&E, or NHS walk–in centres. GU Nurse practitioners and those taking on more advanced roles such as symptomatic screening clinics will also find this an essential reference.
