Discrepancies between guidelines and emerging health concerns complicate women’s healthcare. Touchpoint can help you improve women’s lives.
Women’s health is a constantly evolving field and with many critical unmet needs, particularly in screening and disease prevention. A multitude of factors governs women’s health, including their families, communities, and work environments. Because women respond to care in a gender-specific way, they require gender-specific assessment, education, and intervention.
Discrepancies and disagreements exist between screening guidelines pertaining to Pap smears, bone density testing, and physical exams. New options for birth control become available frequently, requiring provider and patient education.
Recommendation intervals for breast imaging are challenged due to the increasing effectiveness of breast cancer treatments that change the risk/benefit tradeoff in breast cancer screening. However, newer breast cancer treatments and medications are still most effective if the cancer is detected early. This remains the responsibility of obstetrics and gynecology providers. Guidelines for integrative medical exams, risk assessment, and disease prevention have been proposed but not implemented yet. Infection with human papilloma virus (HPV) and associated cancer is an emerging problem in women’s health, but no accepted screening guideline exists.
