Abstract

This article explores issues of sexual health relevant to client care that is, could, or should be offered by nurses in general practice. Sexual health is often the most important element of a person’s holistic health and well-being to be overlooked during consultations. Sadly, some professional carers consider it is not their job, is too embarrassing, morally ‘problematic’ or outside their area of expertise. Sexual health is part of life: not to address it means that health professionals fail to fully address all aspects of their clients’ holistic health and well-being. The result is selective or reduced—not holistic—care. This article will point to ways for practice nurses to remedy this situation.
