Georgia Southern University Assistant Professors, Alan Skipper, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, and Joanne Zanetos, DNP, MSN, RN, have published both the chapter, “Sexual Dysfunction in the Older Adult” in the Handbook of Geropsychiatry for the Advanced Practice Nurse and the article, “Georgia Death and Dignity Act: The Controversies” in the Journal of Gerontological Nursing.
Skipper and Zanetos along with colleague Matthew Keeslar authored the chapter “Sexual Dysfunction in the Older Adult” which observes the sexual behavior of aging adults. The chapter also examines multifactorial conditions that contribute to sexual problems of these adults.
“Georgia Death and Dignity Act: The Controversies” discusses the Georgia Death and Dignity Act, which is currently in the legislative process for potential votes. This bill would give precedence for physicians to legally prescribe terminally-ill patients prescriptions to aid in dying.
