Intimacy and sex are important. However, for many stroke survivors this an uncomfortable subject with many struggling to come to terms with their ‘new’ body or identity and coping with the implications of this. Additionally, many healthcare professionals do not feel confident or able to talk about sex or to know how to best advise and support patients or their families.
This session will share insights from several perspectives and suggest how we might begin positive and open conversations about intimacy. It also underlines the need for greater awareness about sex and intimacy after stroke.
