Purpose: The purpose of this study is to describe patients' perceptions of sexual concerns existing concurrently with a chronic disease. The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) includes intimacy and sexual functioning as an element of Health-Related Quality of Life. This indicates a need for nursing research in this area. Conceptual Model: The conceptual model being utilized is "Health-Related Quality of Life" by Ira B. Wilson, MD, MSc and Paul D. Cleary, PhD. This study is related to all five levels in the model: "biological and physiological," "functioning," "general health perceptions," and "overall quality of life." Sample: The sample consisted of 54 heterosexual men and women (ages 20 through 70) with various chronic diseases. Method: A secondary analysis of descriptive data from the study "Effect of Sex Education on Nurses' Skills and Clinical Outcomes with Disabled Patients" is being conducted. Results: Data analysis will include 1) a compilation and description of patients' written explanations of sexual problems or concerns and 2) a frequency distribution of categories of sexual concerns. Some patients identified sexual concerns at the same time they denied having a sexual problem. The descriptions of these patients' concerns will be included as a subcategory. Conclusions: The contribution of sexual concerns to major concepts in the "Health-Related Quality of Life" model will be the focus of the Discussion section. Psychological and relationship implications of the patients' concerns will be included. Implications for nursing include the importance of addressing sexual concerns in patients with chronic diseases and types of concerns to assess.
