Rehab Nursing Series Course 15
Focus: Using the PLISSIT Model to Address Intimacy & Sexual Function
Every one of us is a sexual being with a need for intimacy, physical contact, and love. Issues of roles and relationships are very complex. The impact of disability and health conditions are many and varied and can affect all phases of sexual response, sexual well-being, and intimacy.
Across the continuum of care, the sexual health needs of our patients should be a priority for the interdisciplinary team. However, most clinicians caring for persons with disability have limited experience and skills in addressing these issues. This course helps to develop the knowledge and skills required to utilize the PLISSIT model to address intimacy and sexuality in those with disability.
Chapter 1 Overview
The rehab team often avoids discussing issues related to sexuality and intimacy because of fear, discomfort, embarrassment, and lack of knowledge or lack of resources when responding to questions. But addressing issues of sexuality is considered a standard of care for the rehab nurse.
Chapter 2 Sexual Development & Response
This chapter focuses on a review of normal growth and development stages of intimacy, sexual identity, and sexual function and how they are impacted by injuries/diseases common to rehab patients.
