Abstract

Introduction: Despite profound impacts on sexual well-being and impaired sexual functioning prevalent among gynaecological cancer patients, sexuality care has been neglected in most countries. This study aims to develop a practice model and protocol to guide and promote sexuality nursing care in clinical practice. Methods: The study adopted a concept mapping approach which consisted of three phases. In Phase I, 30 gynaecological cancer patients and their spouses/partners, 20 registered nurses and physicians working in the gynaecological oncology unit were interviewed to elicit their perceptions of good nursing practice in sexuality care. A list of statements was generated and then returned to them to rate the level of similarities and perceived level of importance in good sexuality care. Based on these ratings, a concept map was constructed by using multi-dimensional scaling and cluster analysis. Results: A total of 50 statements were generated and organized into seven themes: (1) Information giving; (2) Discussion about sexual impact of treatment; (3) Attitudes towards sexuality care provision; (4) Mode of sexuality care delivery; (5) Personnel involved in sexuality care delivery; (6) Timing of sexuality care delivery and (7) Organisational support. A concept map was constructed and used to guide the development of a practice model and protocol to promote the provision of sexuality care for gynaecological cancer patients. Conclusion: This study produced a practice model and protocol guiding nurses to deliver timely and effective sexuality nursing care for gynaecological cancer patients.
