- "Ex-PLISSIT Enablement’ of Sexuality and Sexual Expression in Occupational Therapy - Perspectives on a Hybrid Practice Model
Researcher(s): Michelle Towell, Nicole Kerbrat, Sylvia Davidson, Kevin Reel
Survey Description: We are looking for OT feedback on a model of practice created to increase levels of comfort and competence among OTs working with clients around issues of sexuality and sexual expression. We have created an anonymous online survey that will take about 20-25 minutes, including a brief explanation of the model. Further details are available on the first information page of the survey itself. The survey has been approved by the University of Toronto Health Sciences Research Ethics Board.
- Addressing Clients’ Sexual Health Issues in Occupational Therapy Practice
Researchers: Kelli Young (UHN), Carol Heck (UHN), Abrielle Dodington (University of Toronto), Catherine Smith (University of Toronto)
Occupational therapists regard sexual health as a relevant domain of practice; however, previous research demonstrates that client sexuality is not adequately addressed in healthcare. This study uses an online questionnaire and aims to understand beliefs, knowledge, comfort, and practices of Canadian occupational therapists in various practice settings in regards to addressing clients’ sexual health.
