Development of a sexuality intervention for Stroke survivors and their partners: A Delphi study

May 17, 2017

4 out of 5 Australian Stroke survivors do not have the opportunity to discuss sexuality or receive information about sexuality after Stroke.  Sexuality includes sexual orientation, identity and roles, relationships, intimacy and reproduction.  We know that many Stroke survivors and partners of Stroke survivors experience difficulty and dissatisfaction with sexuality after Stroke.   Rehabilitation professionals report a lack of interventions to address these problems.

We would like to develop an intervention to address sexuality that can be provided to Stroke survivors and partners of Stroke survivors and we need your help!  Our study seeks to prioritise topics that should be included in an intervention and to identify the best way to deliver this intervention.  If you choose to participate you will be asked to complete 2 surveys. In the surveys you will be asked to rank different topics according to how important you believe they are for sexuality after Stroke. You will also be asked to identify any additional topics/ areas that should be included in interventions and to identify who should provide the intervention.  Your responses will be confidential and you will not be asked to share any information about your own experiences of sexuality.

If you would like further information about the study please contact us at:  Margaret.mcgrath@sydney.edu.au or by telephone 0466104440 / 02 9351 9213
