Twenty Common Problems in Women's Health Care is not competing to muscle aside the more comprehensive textbooks on primary women's health care, ie, Primary Care of Women by Carson et al (Mosby, 1995), Primary Care of Women by Lemke et al (Appleton & Lange, 1995), and The Medical Care of Women by Carr et al (Saunders, 1995). Rather, editorial collaborators Smith, a physician, and Shimp, a pharmacist, have chosen 20 topics "based on data obtained from the National Ambulatory Medical Care Survey and the National Center for Health Statistics and published papers about why women visit their health care providers and the problems they bring to these encounters. In addition, we sought advice from colleagues, friends, patients, and family members about the concerns of today's women."
