The International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health Process of Care for the Identification of Sexual Concerns and Problems in Women
- Created: Wednesday, 03 April 2019
Sexual problems are common in women of all ages. Despite their frequency and impact, female sexual dysfunction (FSDs) are often unrecognized and untreated in clinical settings. This POC describes core and advanced competencies in FSD for clinicians who are not sexual medicine specialists and serve as caregivers of women and, therefore, is useful for clinicians with any level of competence in sexual medicine. The goal of the POC is to provide guidance to clinicians regarding screening, education, management, and referral for women with sexual problems.
