Continuing Education: Sexuality in Serious Illness Care

Wednesday, February 28
5:30 – 8 p.m.

The provision of whole-person care requires us to recognize the multidimensional impact that living with a serious illness has on each aspect of a patient’s quality of life: physically, socially, psychologically, spiritually, and culturally. Conducting a comprehensive biopsychosocial-spiritual assessment lays the groundwork for the sensitive exploration of how serious illness and its treatment influences our patient’s sexuality and sexual expression. This interactive workshop will use the PLISSIT model as a foundation to address these concerns. Strategies to support the historically, politically, and socially marginalized with these complex and interconnected issues will be explored, with tools and resources provided.

Completion of this class will result in the receipt of 2.5 continuing education hours.
