Safer-sex education is crucial for controlling the spread of HIV and this education is within the realm of nursing practice.
Safer-sex education for persons with mental illness must include repetitive, interactive education capitalizing on verbal, visual, written, tactile, and motor skill teaching methods to compensate for learning disabilities that have been identified in this population.
In this study, individual rather than a group teaching approach to the sensitive subject of safer-sex provided the most learning.
The study subjects did not exhibit overt sexual behavior, increased sexual acting out, regression, or overstimulation when safer-sex education was presented.
