Date Presented 03/28/20

The purpose of this study was to determine the effectiveness of an online education program to improve the participants’ comfort and confidence when addressing sexuality. The study was a pretest–posttest design completed over six weeks and included 21 OT practitioners. The results indicated that the practitioners had improved comfort and confidence when addressing sexuality, had decreased concerns about addressing sexuality, and had an increased rate of addressing sexuality.
