COVENTRY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF HEALTH AND SOCIAL SCIENCES Name: Lisa Gallard Cohort: February 2008 Module code and title: 363CPD Management of Chronic Kidney Disease Assignment Title: Sexual Dysfunction in Chronic Renal Patients Module Leader: Richard Flemming Word Allowance: 2500 +/- 10% Word Count: 2447 Date for Submission: 13th June 2008 The purpose of this essay is to look at the physiological aspects of sexual dysfunction in people with chronic kidney disease, in particular those who are receiving haemodialysis (HD). It will also discuss the differences of impact between male and female patients as well as exploring the treatments that are available. Until the 1960’s, chronic renal failure (CRF) was classed as a terminal illness for which there was no definitive treatment.

HD remains the most common treatment for patients with ESRF (Hoffart & Sharp 1991).

They were viewed as needing to be cured, or incurable dependants and needing to be placed in an institution.

They challenged the authorities for the rights of disabled people to control their own lives. They created new definitions of ‘impairment’ and ‘disability’ which formed the basis of the Social model of disability.
