Highly Commended in the 2016 BMA Medical Book Awards!
"...undoubtedly the best feature is the user-friendly and consistent nature of the format. Each method of contraception has a dedicated chapter with an identical outline showcasing factual and practical content using bulleted text, tables and pictograms.... The book would be useful for medical students that are 'new' to the subject as the outline of the chapters lends itself to seamless grasping of new information. However, the practical application of the factual information is ideal for both gynaecological and family planning trainees, nurses that work within the field and general practitioners." Ulster Medical Journal 2016:85(3):211
