This course provides a foundation for healthcare professionals to holistically incorporate sexuality and intimacy into the brain injury rehabilitation process, regardless of stage in recovery. It introduces common definitions and considerations from the patient and family, including factors that influence personal beliefs, as well as perceived barriers to addressing sexuality and intimacy in customary care.
