Sexuality is a fundamental human occupation, yet research shows practitioners and clients rarely address these issues within OT practice. This presentation discusses the results of a web-based survey of 80 entry-level OT educators regarding attitudes and perceptions about teaching topics related to sexuality. The researchers aim to encourage future research and educational practices focusing on increasing the delivery of sexuality content within entry-level OT education.
