Sexuality in Elder Women: Why Physicians Need to Ask About It
August 11, 2014•15 min
Hosted by: Matt Birnholz It is known from prior studies that healthcare professionals who wait for the subjects of sex and intimacy to be brought forth by their patients will typically not cover these important health topics at all. Nowhere is this more prominent than in elderly patient populations, particularly in women, where even the mere idea of continuing sexuality is so often ignored. Dr. Michael Krychman, Executive Director of the Southern California Center for Sexual Health and Survivorship in Newport Beach, CA, joins host Dr. Matt Birnholz to discuss counseling strategies on sexual health that physicians must incorporate into their practices for optimal care of elder women.
