NURS 7550 Current Issues in Sexual Health Care (Spring: 3 )

Course Description

Sexual health is a critical component of well-being across the lifespan. Current research reveals that gender and sexual health identity and orientation are key factors in understanding patterns of sexual health behaviors and risks, and experiences of health, wellness, and illness. This course examines current and emerging issues affecting sexual health and strategies to inform clinical practice, including: the nurse-patient relationship and its influence on sexual well-being; health disparities linked to societal stigmas, prejudices, and discrimination; and ways to improve access to quality health care for populations disproportionately at risk for or affected by STIs including HIV/AIDS.
