Abstract

Anecdotal evidence from clinical practice, classroom learning and research studies suggests most aspects of sexual health and wellbeing are addressed inadequately or not at all. Some nurses may feel ill-equipped or underprepared to explore private or intimate aspects of a patient’s sexual health or relationships, or may be too embarrassed to talk to the individual about the personal side effects of medical conditions or treatment regimens. This article identifies strategies to assist healthcare professionals in addressing patients’ sexual health needs as part of holistic care.
