Sex Education Webinar Series Following Spinal Cord Injury/Disease
Tuesday, November 13, 2018
2:00-3:00 PM Eastern
Registration for members is free; registration for non-members is $34.
An interdisciplinary team created a four week, one hour webinar series to address sex related topics to individuals and their significant others following spinal cord injury and disease (SCI/D). The series was designed based on the results of a community needs assessment survey, selecting the top four topics: positioning and sex toys, sexual function basics, relationships/dating, and sexual identity. A physiatrist, rehabilitation psychologist, occupational therapist, rehab educator, social worker, nurse practitioner, and individuals living with SCI/D contributed to the series. Presenters Lindsay Humphrey, MOT, OTR/L, and Danielle Housman from the University of Utah Hospital will discuss the outcomes of the interactive-webinar series including ability to participate in desired sexual activities, knowledge of reputable education sources, level of confidence to communicate sexual needs with health care providers and significant others and fertility/pregnancy education.
