The preface to the second edition of Primary Care of Women echoes the first, noting the "unprecedented transformation of the health care system in the United States and of the position of women within that system." Central to this tranformation, Drs Carlson and Eisenstat cite recognition of the value of primary care and integration of multiple medical specialties to provide care for the "whole woman"; recognition of the gaps in scientific knowledge and the need for more research to establish a scientific basis for the clinical care of women; and the central role of the patient in the process of primary care.
