Clinical Practice Handbook for Safe Abortion was awarded first prize in the Obstetrics and gynecology category of the British Medical Association 2015 Medical Book Competition.
The Clinical Practice Handbook for Safe Abortion is intended to facilitate the practical application of the clinical recommendations from the second edition of Safe Abortion. While legal, regulatory, policy and service-delivery contexts may vary from country to country, the recommendations and best practices described in both of these documents aim to enable evidence-based decision-making with respect to safe abortion care.
This handbook is oriented to providers who already have the requisite skills and training necessary to provide safe abortion and/or treat complications of unsafe abortion. It is neither a substitute for formal training, nor a training manual.
