The purpose of this study was to develop and assess a staff development intervention seeking to promote dialogue about client sexuality in a mental health setting. Fifteen staff and two nurse managers from a single psychiatric inpatient unit participated. Major themes influencing practice regarding client sexuality were explored, and nursing strategies used by participants were analyzed. The intervention, which in this case focused on client sexuality, serves as a potential model for staff development specialists seeking to develop care in important areas of nursing practice.
