Female Sexual Dysfunction: Treatment
General An open discussion with the patient is important as couples may need to be educated about normal anatomy and physiologic responses, including role of orgasm in sexual encounters. Physiologic changes associated with aging and/or disease should be explained. Couples may need to be reminded that clitoral stimulation rather than coital intromission may be more beneficial.
Behavioral modification and nonpharmacologic therapies should be a first step. Patient and partner counseling may improve communication and relationship strains.

Having worked in a variety of specialty areas over the years as staff nurses, clinical
nurse specialists, educators, therapists, and managers, we realize that nurses

to deal with complex behaviors and psychiatric problems on top of the demands
of providing physical care for the patient and family.

Classifying travel behavior and segmentation becomes increasingly more difficult as modern travelers
combine pleasure with business, in order to take time and cost advantage. There are therefore
endless variations between the two principle classifications of travel activities, i.e. business and leisure
trips. However, leisure trips may include elements, characteristics and motivations of business travel
and vice versa. Incentive travelling, extended conference stays and business meetings during leisure
travel makes the distinction between the two categories increasingly blurred.
In 1871, over 30 years before Alois Alzheimer published his seminal cases, James
Crichton - Browne may have been among the fi rst physicians to remark upon the

Darwin (Snyder & Pearn, 2007 ). Age - related mental deterioration as an entity had

Oligomeric assemblies of amyloid-b(Ab) are suggested to be central in the
pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease because levels of soluble Abcorrelate
much better with the extent of cognitive dysfunctions than do senile plaque
counts. Moreover, such Abspecies have been shown to be neurotoxic, to
interfere with learned behavior and to inhibit the maintenance of hippo-campal long-term potentiation.
