This video includes a sexuality assessment using the PLISSIT model, and demonstrates how to introduce the topic and conduct the brief interview process. Once the assessment findings are summarized and discussed by the Nurse Practitioner and the student conducting the assessment, the information is taken to the team for their expert advice. The subsequent plan includes information to educate the patient, allay anxiety, and provides strategies and resources which will help her resume her sexual relationship with her partner.
As we age, so do our eyes. The resulting changes can put older adults at risk for injury; limit participation in favorite activities; cause increased sensitivity to light and glare; and ultimately limit independence. However, in many older adults with “low vision” the problems are not so obvious to others—until we take a closer look and better understand the nature and extent of the problem.
However, there are many simple interventions and enhanced technologies available to maximize vision and function. This 30-minute program provides viewers with a broad range of tools and strategies to enhance safety and maximize independence, and describes services, tools, and options available for those with vision loss.
