NURSES’ PERSPECTIVE TOWARDS CARING FOR JORDANIAN MEN WITH SEXUAL HEALTH PROBLEMS
*Author to whom correspondence should be addressed.
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.
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.
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.
