Abstract

Purpose

This study examined nurses’ role in their practice, nursing education and the impact of culture in Jordan on helping men suffering from sexual problems.

Design and Methods

A cross-sectional study design was used: 265 nurses completed and returned the questionnaire, a 57.4%response rate.

Findings

Overall, sexual health problems appeared hidden and unresolved. This may be a result of culture and society issues, including masculinity, men’s health beliefs, religious issues and men’s lack of trust in nurses and their keeping things confidential.

Practice Implications

Creating a comprehensive strategy for sexual health care is necessary. This will require education, increased awareness and development of appropriate gender sensitive health services to suit the culture of Jordan.
