Full description

While there is evidence to support consideration of client sexuality needs
in the provision of rehabilitation services to people with spil cord injury
(SCI), the interdiscipliry team rarely receives training in this area. The
current study aimed to examine the effectiveness of a consumer-driven sexuality
training program in improving staff knowledge, comfort (general and
persol) and attitudes. Using a local needs assessment to identify training
needs and the Permission, Limited Information, Specific Suggestions and
Intensive Therapy (PLISSIT) model as a training framework, a sexuality
training program was developed in one Australian SCI service. A randomized
controlled trial was conducted and significant improvement was found in all
domains for the treatment group - Knowledge(?2 = 46.141, p < 0.001),
Comfort (?2 = 23.338, p < 0.001), Approach(?2 = 23.925, p < 0.001)
and Attitude (?2 = 15.235, p < 0.001) compared to the control group.
Changes were found to be maintained at three month follow-up - Knowledge
(Z = -5.116, p < 0.001), Comfort (Z = -3.953, p < 0.001),
Approach (Z = -4.103, p < 0.001) and Attitudes (Z = -2.655, p <
0.001). These results support the use of an individualized needs-based sexuality
training program in fostering staff knowledge, comfort and attitudil
change in an interdiscipliry SCI rehabilitation service.
