Abstract

Nurses can be a force in contributing towards the aims of the UK’s sexual health strategies, especially through reducing sexual stigmas and correcting some major sexual health service deficits. This article explores some social representations of certain sexual messages in the UK media, and their relation to stigma and nursing care. After reading this article and completing the associated Time Out activities you will be able to:

■ Describe how certain public and media messages highlight specific social representations of sexual health that may be detrimental in care.

■ Evaluate the impact that stigma and discrimination can have on care and service provision.

■ Specify some good practice guidelines in the duty of care for clients needing particular sexual health services.

■ Propose a suitable method of developing learning and practice in relation to sexual health care.
