"This wonderful and insightful book is an excellent resource for providers caring for women experiencing pain. This group of patients is considered a vulnerable population that is often faced with issues of power imbalance and lack of understanding from the healthcare professionals charged with providing them assistance. This unique book is an excellent resource for all primary care providers and pain management providers... Weighted Numerical Score: 99 - 5 Stars!"

This clinical resource describes instead the evidence-based approach to womenís pain that offers optimum relief as well as a compassionate responseÖ Congratulations to Yvonne for creation of this resource, which will serve as an excellent tool for clinicians dedicated to pain relief for women. ì -Betty Ferrell, PhD, MA, FAAN, FPCN, CHPN Professor and Research Scientist City of Hope, Duarte, California Recent research studies have indicated that there is a difference between the pain experienced by men and that experienced by women.
