This book has been developed to help nurses who are in nurse practitioner roles by supporting them to develop their ‘advanced practice skills’. This book is intended to build on skills and knowledge that nurses will have acquired at staff nurse level. It is intended that this book will develop skills and knowledge which until recently have been more in the medical domain, such sexual history taking and physical assessment.

The role of the Genito-Urinary (GU) nurse practitioner/specialist is still relatively new, with many nurses working in sexual health undertaking roles which, until recently, were the domain of doctors. Advanced Clinical Skills for GU Nurses has been developed to help nurses who are in ‘nurse practitioner’ roles by supporting them to develop their advanced practice skills.

  • Health promotion and sexual health
  • Women’s sexual health
