The subject of men′s health and the role of the practice nurse are growing areas in primary care.  Practice nurses are expert practitioners regarding diverse aspects of healthcare, however men′s health needs have in the past been overlooked in many healthcare related disciplines and across a number of fields. This trend is changing and the needs of men are beginning to be addressed.

Men not only have unique health concerns they also suffer more from certain diseases. Many of the health risks that men face can be prevented and treated if diagnosed early. 90% of healthcare in the NHS is carried out in general practice, this places the practice nurse at the forefront of primary healthcare provision and in particular the provision of men′s healthcare. This text focuses on the clinical role of the practice nurse and the contribution that can be made in order to promote health.

Men′s Health: The Practice Nurse′s Handbook will:

  • Address some of the common issues/conditions that may be seen or encountered by the practice nurse.
  • Provide practical information and guidance to the practice nurse, that is evidence based.
  • Strengthen and broaden the scientific knowledge base of the practitioner.
  • Provide user–friendly information in a straightforward accessible manner.

This will be an informative guide for practice nurses, specialist community public health nurses, post registration nurses undertaking a programme of study leading to recording on the professional register, pre registration student nurses undertaking a programme of study leading to entry on to the professional register, nurses working in NHS Direct, nurses working in NHS walk in centres and nurses working in the prison setting.
