Sexual Health

Sexual health is a basic human right that can often be disrupted after a spinal cord injury (SCI), stroke or acquired brain injury (ABI). Many people with these diagnoses have questions about their sexuality that are often not addressed in rehabilitation. In 2017-2018 a team of clinicians, researchers and persons with lived experience of SCI identified this as a gap in care and developed a new sexual health practice for SCI rehabilitation at Parkwood Institute.
