The elephant in the room : a critical interpretive synthesis of older adultsU+2019 sexuality

Tijdschriftbijdrage - Tijdschriftartikel

Objectives: This study aimed to explore past studies that have focused exclusively on the sexuality of adults older than 65 from a positive public health approach.Methods: We performed a critical interpretive synthesis, starting with the literature review on sexual behaviors in later life, adding policy documents on aging sexuality, and bringing new perspectives.Results: Older adults continue to be sexually active. Healthcare professionals lack knowledge and communication skills surrounding aging sexuality and no policies before 2013 mention aging sexuality.Conclusions: We posit that society's view of later life sexuality reflects on practice, policies, and research on this topic, which influence back society's view.
