Gynaecology by Ten Teachers pdf

Gynaecology by Ten Teachers – First published in 1919 as ‘Diseases of Women’, Gynaecology by Ten Teachers is well established as a concise, yet comprehensive, guide within its field. The twentieth edition has been thoroughly updated by a new team of ‘teachers’, integrating clinical material with the latest scientific developments that underpin patient care.

Each chapter is highly structured, with learning objectives, definitions, aetiology, clinical features, investigations, treatments, case histories and key point summaries and additional reading where appropriate. New themes for this edition include ‘professionalism’ and ‘global health’ and information specific to both areas is threaded throughout the text.

Along with its companion Obstetrics by Ten Teachers, the books will continue to provide an accessible ‘one stop shop’ in obstetrics and gynaecology for a new generation of doctors.

The consultation should ideally be held in a closedroom with adequate facilities and privacy. Manywomen will feel anxious or apprehensive about theforthcoming consultation, so it is important that theexaminer establishes initial rapport with the patientand puts them at ease. The examiner should beintroduced by name (a handshake often helps) andshould check the patient’s details. Ideally, there shouldbe no more than one other person in the room, butany student or attending nurse should be introducedby name and their role briefly explained. Gynaecology by Ten Teachers

A number of women attend with their partneror close family member or friend. Provided thepatient herself consents to this, there is no reason toexclude them from the initial consultation, but thisshould be limited to one person.

In some instances,the additional person may be required to be a keypart of the consultation, i.e. if there is a language orcomprehension difficulty. However, it is important torecognize that some women may feel obliged to havetheir mother/partner present and may not provide allthe relevant information with them present. Gynaecology by Ten Teachers

At leastsome part of the consultation or examination shouldbe with the woman alone to allow her to answer anyspecific queries more openly.It is important to be aware of the different attitudesto various women’s health issues in a religious andculturally diverse population.

Appropriate respectand sensitivity should always be shown.Enough time should be allowed for the patientto express herself and the doctor’s manner should beone of interest and understanding, while guiding herwith appropriate questioning. A history that is takenwith sensitivity will often encourage the patient toreveal more details which may be relevant to futuremanagement.A set template should be used for history taking,as this prevents the omission of important points andwill help direct the consultation. A sample templateis given below.
