Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to implement an educational program for healthcare professionals employed by Kaiser Permanente (e.g., physicians, nurses, and social workers) on older adult sexual health. Topics would include the increased transference of sexually transmitted infections among the older adult population. The professionals would also acquire the tools needed to enhance their comfort levels when engaging in sexual health discussions with older adult patients.

The goals are to increase (1) the professionals' knowledge of sexuality and sexual behaviors among older adults and (2) their comfort levels when discussing sexual health with their older adult patients. A total of 2,100 healthcare professionals would participate during the funding period. The program would be evaluated by means of pre/post-testing of knowledge and comfort levels, as well as a satisfaction survey. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
