Clinical Practice (assessment, diagnosis, treatment, knowledge translation/EBP, implementation science, program development)
This workshop on sexuality and intimacy in brain injury rehabilitation has been developed to reduce stigma and build knowledge, imparting an increase in comfort that leads to action in addressing the topic for our patients. Content shared will include: biopsychosocial factors, sexual dysfunction and the impact on the person with a brain injury and their partners, cultural and interpersonal aspects to consider, and communication strategies to employ. Throughout the workshop, attendees will participate in reflection on current practice and potential biases, as well as institutional practices and policies. Upon completion of the workshop, attendees will come away with tools to facilitate change in practice within their organization.
