Women with spinal cord injury and sexual health: implications for public health

Women with spinal cord injury and sexual health: implications for public health

 

Community Based Rehabilitation Team

Department of Recreation, Park, and Tourism Studies – School of Public Health

 

Abstract

Sexual health takes on an entirely new meaning for women after sustaining a spinal cord injury (SCI). The majority of sexual health information provided during the rehabilitation process is often geared towards men with limited to no resources available to women. Furthermore, this information is typically not provided by rehabilitation therapists in structured sexual health groups. This study employed semi-structured interviews with SCI women living independently in the community to examine sexuality and intimacy while living with a SCI. Findings indicate that sexual health education information was sometimes provided in rehabilitation hospitals, however such materials were perceived to be focused on male patients, untimely, and attention to sexuality issues was usually absent from post rehabilitation care. Additionally, participants identified a need for educational materials for partners of individuals with SCI, as well as themselves regarding sexuality and relationship with particular attention on (a) intrapersonal constraints to intimacy/sexuality, (b) interpersonal partner communication, and (c) physiological constraints to intimacy/sexuality. The results demonstrate the impact living with a SCI has on intimacy and sexuality for women and the need for better sexual health education within the context of public health.
