Importance of Sexual Needs Assessment in Palliative Care
Nursing standard (Royal College of Nursing (Great Britain) : 1987) 2010 Sep 1-7; 24(52): 35-9
Sexuality is a fundamental aspect of being human. Guidance states that to support and improve the lives of adults with life-limiting illness, health professionals must address care in the social, psychological, spiritual and physical domains, yet no mention is made of the sexual domain. Palliative care aims to be holistic yet evidence suggests that sexuality is often overlooked when assessing care needs. This literature review will identify the issues that prevent sexual needs assessment in palliative care.
