It highlights the role of clinical nurses in ensuring patients and their representatives are offered opportunities to participate in research and are supported.In addition, the article illustrates how clinical and research staff jointly assure the safety of patients and the integrity of the research data. Examples of how acute stroke studies provide an opportunity to embed research into everyday nursing practice, thereby enabling nurses to advocate for quality evidence-based patient care, are illustrated.
- Sexual health needs and the LGBT community. [Journal Article]
- Nurs Stand 2013 Apr 10-16; 27(32):35-8.
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) individuals have particular vulnerabilities to sexually transmitted infections and HIV infection. Globally, reasons for this include physiological factors, discrimination and poor understanding of their sexual health needs. In many countries LGBT individuals are not able to exercise fully their rights to health care. This raises public health concerns for the LGBT community and the wider population. This article explores these issues, and makes recommendations for the healthcare profession to address health inequalities and promote improved health outcomes for LGBT populations. This article aims to promote an evidence-based approach that focuses on rights and public health issues.
