Sexuality is one quality of being human. Sexual health must be addressed as a significant and integral element of total health care. Nurses caring for patients with oncology and neuromuscular related disabilities are presented with situations concerning sexual dysfunctions that require judgement, knowledge and sensitivity. Yet, studies have shown that nurses demonstrate low sexual knowledge levels and conservative sexual attitudes. They often neglect this aspect of patient care. The sexual attitudes of nurses may be a significant obstacle to their effective functioning in the field of sexual counseling. This proposed study will investigate sexual attitudes of oncology nurses and rehabilitation nurses.
