Further information

Intimacy and sex are important. However, for many stroke survivors this is an uncomfortable subject with many struggling to come to terms with their ‘new’ body or identity and coping with the implications of this. Additionally, many healthcare professionals do not feel confident or able to talk about sex, or to know how to best advise and support patients or their families.  This session will share insights from several perspectives and suggest how we might begin positive and open conversations about sex. It also underlines the need for greater awareness about sex and intimacy after stroke. 

#LifeAfterStroke is Stroke Alliance for Europe‘s series of interactive webinars focusing on bringing together the life after stroke community to stimulate debate and improve care.
