The text examines the care of women who have traditionally been invisible or ignored in clinical training, including lesbians and women with developmental disabilities. Newer areas such as the care of women at genetic risk for cancer are also examined. Also included are lists of organizations and web sites that provide up-to-date evidence-based information on the topics presented in the text.
