Women's Wishes and Need for Knowledge Concerning Sexuality and Relationships in Connection with Gynecological Cancer Disease
2008 (English)In: Sexuality and disability, ISSN 0146-1044, E-ISSN 1573-6717, Vol. 26, no 4, p. 207-218Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate women's wishes and need for knowledge concerning sexuality and relationships in connection with gynecological cancer. A total of 11 women were interviewed following the completion of their treatment for gynecological cancer. The data was analyzed using latent content analysis. Two main categories were identified: "The absence of knowledge about the body" and "Conversation with sexual relevance." The women wished with their partners present, to be given more in-depth knowledge about their situation given by competent staff who are sensitive to what knowledge is required. Thus, it is important that nurses, who care for women with gynecological cancer, meet each woman's individual needs for knowledge about the effects on her sexuality due to her disease and treatment.
