'This timely publication will go a long way in helping the many professionals in the field to deliver care as part of a team. Essential reading for pre- and post-registration students in sexual health.' Kate French, in her Foreword 'This book paves the way forward in terms of providing the first truly integrated educational resource for nurses. Such a significant contribution to the evolving specialty of integrated contraceptive and sexual healthcare will also enhance career pathways and opportunities for nurses. It also highlights the growing need for training and education programmes to be developed with the concept of integrated care in mind. [The] book will be welcome, not only to nurses currently providing integrated models of contraceptive and sexual healthcare, but also to a much wider range of healthcare workers who provide care in either of the contraception or GUM specialities, as well as educationalists who will provide programmes of training to these practitioners.'

This book provides a scholarly discussion of arguably the most important advance in U.S. public health services since Medicare 50 years ago - how the Federal program known as the Patient Care and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA) or "Obamacare" became law. It addresses ACA in terms of its impact on improving health and behavioural health services for key diverse populations in America, including people with disabilities, consumers, women, racial and ethnic minorities, and veterans and their families. From the very beginning, ACA was controversial and the topic of heated political debate at both state and national levels. This book examines more closely how the legislation was developed, including the political history of the act; the many advocacy efforts at the national level and the community-based action strategies at the grassroots level; how ACA will affect a broad cross-section of America; the integration of health and behavioural health services as a key component of ACA; the financing of ACA and parity for behavioural health services. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Social Work in Disability & Rehabilitation.

From reviews: "This book aims to provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of contraceptive methods, and issues related to their use. The authors have succeeded in this aim, producing a very readable book, which can equally be read as a whole or in sections without losing the context... I thought that the chapters on combined oral contraceptives and emergency contraception were particularly good, and the chapter providing an overview of sexually transmitted infections and their management highlighted an important but potentially overlooked element of a contraceptive consultation. Other particularly useful features of the book are the ‘starting regimens’ and ‘myths and misconceptions’ sections included for each method, which provide clear guidance on treatment initiation and robust discussion on common misapprehensions about contraception. The book includes a useful decision tree on which to base an initial consultation..." J Fam Plann Reprod Health Care 2016;42:58. Contraception Made Easy provides a concise overview of the subject and is especially written for non-specialists. The main audience for the book will be those working or training in primary care who want an easy-to-access, brief reference on the subject. Building on the success of the other Made Easy books (Medical Statistics Made Easy, Clinical Evidence Made Easy, Healthcare Economics Made Easy, Practice Accounts Made Easy), this book provides concise and easy access to the key areas of contraception required by primary care professionals. About the authors: Laura Percy is a Specialist Registrar in Community Sexual and Reproductive Health. Diana Mansour is a Consultant in Community Gynaecology and Reproductive Healthcare and Head of the Integrated Sexual Health Services for Newcastle upon Tyne, UK. She is also a Faculty Officer and Treasurer for the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Health Care, UK.

Clinical photographs, illustrations, photographs of specimens and cultures, histopathology, flow charts and line diagrams are given extensively throughout the text to make relevant clinical situation self-explanatory. Has very useful and practical information for even the clinician in the periphery, where the investigative component is either non-existent or very basic and many new drugs are not available or unaffordable. Management of HIV in adults and children in resource-poor countries has been covered extensively along with syndromic management of STIs. This enables a physician to choose from approaches in a particular situation depending upon the available means—laboratory or therapeutic. Covers sexual dysfunction in both men and women and the basics of human sexual behavior and sexual health. Section Editors and Contributors from all continents of the world have made this a truly global reference book. It is a useful reference text for epidemiologists, public health experts, clinicians, microbiologists, health workers, social organizations and counselors working in the field of STIs, sexual health, and HIV.

The starting point for this guideline is the point at which a woman has learnt that she is living with HIV, and it therefore covers key issues for providing comprehensive sexual and reproductive health and rights-related services and support for women living with HIV. As women living with HIV face unique challenges and human rights violations related to their sexuality and reproduction within their families and communities, as well as from the health-care institutions where they seek care, particular emphasis is placed on the creation of an enabling environment to support more effective health interventions and better health outcomes. This guideline is meant to help countries to more effectively and efficiently plan, develop and monitor programs and services that promote gender equality and human rights and hence are more acceptable and appropriate for women living with HIV, taking into account the national and local epidemiological context. It discusses implementation issues that health interventions and service delivery must address to achieve gender equality and support human rights.

London has high rates of STI and HIV diagnoses, variation in access and activity across boroughs, an annual spend of over u00a3140m and 1.4m clinic attendances. A partnership of London boroughs u2013 London Sexual Health (LSH) u2013 was created to evaluate and re-invent this public service. The objective was to deliver the best possible service and outcomes while making best use of resources. An engagement project involving 5000 residents helped inform the shape of services. A vision was developed with shared objectives including a single online STI testing service. The aim was to support service users towards self-management and away from face-to-face screening where appropriate, enabling clinics to focus on delivering care to vulnerable and complex patients. Over the past 2 years, councils clustered into 7 u2018sub-regionsu2019 to develop local services within the context of the overall programme aims of LSH. A modified tariff linked to clinical coding was adopted, and integrated sexual health and contraceptive services were commissioned. There is a robust London-wide governance structure, with senior clinical input as an essential part of the process. The new integrated clinical specification predicated on best practice pathways was developed through a clinical advisory group. A common tariff structure supported integration of STI and contraceptive services. Terrestrial service specifications were required to integrate with a pan-London online clinical service offering more choice and increased access for service-users seeking STI screening. The e-service, launched in January 2018, will become the largest online clinical service in the UK. LSH has delivered a partnership approach to improve the sexual health of London residents by the establishment of robust, sustainable clinical and commissioning collaborations across the capital, enhancing the use of digital technology and self-care, and recognising the different ways that people now live their lives and access services. Progress to date will be presented.
