Evaluation and treatment of sexual dysfunction in an older woman
Kaaki B, Kingsberg SA

Program Audience Primary care physicians. Educational Needs Addressed The female sexual dysfunction disorders are very prevalent, multifaceted problems that are under-recognized and undertreated. Although these disorders can cause significant distress, patients are often hesitant to report sexual difficulties. Direct questioning by physicians about sexual function is often critical to patients’ reporting of sexual concerns. However, health care professionals infrequently initiate a discussion of sexual function with their female patients or conduct a comprehensive evaluation for sexual disorders. Improved recognition and management depends on physicians’ willingness and ability to communicate with female patients about their sexual function. Additional medical education and training are needed to improve the identification and management of sexual disorders in women. Educational Objectives After participating in this CME activity, primary care physicians should be able to 1. Identify the components of a detailed sexual history 2. Describe the approach to physical examination in a patient who identifies a sexual issue 3. Conduct a brief sexual assessment 4. Describe the impact of hormonal changes on sexual function 5. Describe treatment options for hypoactive sexual desire disorder
