Rosemarie Turner Senior staff nurse, Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, London
Gonorrhoea is a common sexually transmitted infection that is on the increase in the male population in the UK. Gonorrhoea is becoming increasingly resistant to antibiotics, making it harder to treat patients effectively. Sexual health nurses therefore have a vital role to play in preventing gonorrhoea reinfection. This article examines the ways in which sexual health nurses can work with male patients to prevent reinfection and effectively maintain their sexual health.
