When thinking about sexuality and reproduction
health we think of STI and STD prevention and teaching that helps
individuals benefit their health in those areas. According to (CDC
24/7), we have to work towards preventing sexual violence, “when
preventing this we have to define the problem, identify risk and
protective problems, develop and test preventative strategies, and
assure widespread adoption.” It is important for us as nurses to be
aware of what the signs of sexual abuse are, and act appropriately when
coming across these situations. As nurses we should implement safe
words, questions to be asked, and remember that their abuser could be
the one in the room with them. Talking with a patient by themselves is a
good idea with these patients as well, so they feel safe to come out
about what they need to. These are all nursing considerations we should
implement. Preventing infections and teaching to practice safe sex are
all things to keep our health up regarding sexuality and reproduction.
It is important to remember that a further part of this is to keep up
with physicals, make sure we get the yearly screenings and tests that
are recommended of us. All of this together is to maintain our sexual
health. When thinking of nursing interventions for screenings and such,
we would want to educate patients on what how often they should get
testings, offer support to converse about topics that could be difficult
to talk about, and have systems that send out reminders to patients
about when they need to schedule appointments.

discussion 2

Sexuality is a normal part of life. No matter
whom you are or where you are from, we all experience and
recognize sexuality at some point. “Sexual health requires a positive
and respectful approach to sexuality and sexual relationships, as well
as the possibility of having pleasurable and safe sexual experiences,
free of coercion, discrimination, and violence. For sexual health to be
attained and maintained, the sexual rights of all persons must be
respected, protected, and fulfilled.”(Swartzendruber & Zenilman,
2010). The way that I interpreted this statement is that, regardless of
your culture, or your diversity, sexuality exists. However, with
sexuality, comes possibility of poor health outcomes. These can include
STDs, unplanned pregnancy, HIV & AIDS and poor reproductive health.
According to (Swartzendruber & Zenilman, 2010) open public
discussion is needed to change the stigma surrounding these sexual
health issues. With that being said, us nurses have responsibilities and
need to plan interventions to promote and maintain healthy and positive
outcomes for our patients regarding sexuality. For starters, I feel
education is important and should be a top priority. Providing our
patients with proper education such as protection measures, STD
screening and contraceptive options can be very beneficial. Educating
our patients on necessary safety issues, and when they should be seen by
their doctor is also important. Encouraging them to maintain their
sexual health and to be seen annually is a great intervention. I think
it is also important for us as nurses to be a listening ear to patients
who may feel trapped or like they have no one to talk to regarding their
sexuality and any issues tagging along with it. Essentially providing a
safe environment, words of advice, and providing information for
further help is another thing we as nurses can do.
