Customized Ob/Gyn Management for Diverse Populations provides tailored options of management for optimal clinical care of the major preventive and interventive Ob/Gyn issues. Case scenarios highlight and discuss the need for customized care and inclusive protocols that depend on each woman's race, gender, sexual orientation, culture and socio-economic factors. As health disparities adversely affect groups of people who have systematically experienced greater social and economic obstacles to health based on their racial or ethnic group, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual orientation or other characteristics historically linked to discrimination or exclusion, this book provides a welcomed resource. The book highlights the fact that in order to change the current scenario the health care community needs more information and awareness of health care data regarding diverse groups, population health and well-being.
