Family physicians understand all too well how easy it is for time to pass while focusing on family, career, and life in general. However, it’s important for your patients, especially women, to not brush off health concerns.
Women's Health Concerns
Encourage your female patients to read over familydoctor.org's helpful guide(familydoctor.org) on preventive services. This excellent overview advocates for women to take an active approach to their health as they age. You can also access the AAFP's latest women’s health clinical health recommendations and guidelines, which can help you answer any questions that arise during an exam.
