To analyze the accuracy of the defining characteristics of the nursing diagnosis of sexual dysfunction in women undergoing pharmacological treatment for breast cancer.


A cross-sectional accuracy study with statistical analysis.


Alteration in sexual satisfaction was the defining characteristic with the highest sensitivity value, while perceived sexual limitation was the defining characteristic with the highest value for both sensitivity and specificity.


Perceived sexual limitation is a good clinical indicator to infer initial stages of sexual dysfunction and to confirm its presence. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING PRACTICE Accurate diagnostics allow devising an action plan directed to the patients' real needs, helping prescribe and deliver the appropriate nursing interventions.
