Description

This learning module encourages the reader to consider sexuality and sexual health as essential to a full nursing assessment. It discusses the reasons why nurses should be more open in consultations with mental health service users in regard to sexual health. A step-by-step model that assists nurses in their interventions with service users on issues of sexuality is explored, and each stage of the model is explained. Although predominantly directed at mental health nurses, the main principles in this module could be adapted and applied to other care contexts, such as adult nursing.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Outline the significance of sexuality and sexual health to the comprehensive assessment of patients’ physical and psychological healthcare needs.
Establish a correlation between those with mental health problems and high-risk sexual behaviours.
Examine the effect of prescribed medications and recreational drugs on an individual’s sexual function and sexual activity.
Describe the need for improved perception of sexual health assessment and the role of the nurse in applying an evidence-based interventions model to this area.
