Course Description:

Most of your patients are having sex while injured and/or post-operative, and no one is talking about it. Doctors are not discussing sex with their patients and rehab practitioners are hesitant to discuss options. In this course we will discuss why it is important to ask about sex and the best way to create a safe space to discuss sex. As a case example, we will discuss safe positions after a total hip arthroscopy. We will also discuss what you might not know about how people are having sex, including positions, toys, and sex with different genders.

Course Objectives:

At the end of this course participants will be able to:

  • Discuss why it is important to discuss sex with their patient
  • Learn how to create a safe space to talk about sex with their patients
  • Successfully determine safe sex positions for a patient following a THA
  • Consider options for patients who cannot have penetrative sex due to an injury, operation or pelvic pain
  • Challenge their beliefs about sex
