During this discussion, take some time to consider how you will obtain a sexual history from various special populations, as discussions about sex can be uncomfortable for patients. Discuss how you will help your patient open up to you, ensuring they are comfortable discussing a private issue with you as their healthcare provider. How is caring for a special population patient different from the general population?
