Sexual activity is 1 out of the 9 activities of daily living (ADLs) and is considered to be fundamental for a person's life, yet it is one of the least discussed topics that occupational therapists address in client care settings, academia, and/or professional development.
The aim for this project was to explore how occupational therapists addressed sex/intimacy with the chronic pain population in order to provide more insight and encouragement for other occupational therapists to incorporate discussion of sex/intimacy in their practice.
