Sexuality After Stroke

McGrath et al (In press) How is sexuality after stroke experienced by stroke survivors and partners of stroke survivors? A systematic review of qualitative studies. Clinical Rehabilitation, https://doi.org/10.1177/0269215518793483

I don’t suppose these findings will come as any surprise, but it’s always good to have evidence that supports what we think is, or is not happening. Here in Australia, the results of the national audits support the authors’ conclusion in the abstract, that, after stroke, “sexuality is rarely discussed openly”. In Journal Club 2016, you’ll find an explanation based on a review of the literature, about how stroke impacts sexual function. The page is titled: Altered Sexual Function. So, as a follow-up, this month’s JC directs you to McGrath et al’s (In press) systematic review which investigated and systematically reviewed the “real world” experiences of those who are directly affected.

Please find “Humble Opinion” as a comment to this post, and the Abstract under the Journal 218 page.
