Abstract:
Article reports findings from the analysis of survey responses of persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) at 4 intervals: during initial inpatient rehabilitation and at 6, 12, and 18 months after discharge from the impatient hospital unit. The interval between inpatient rehabilitation to 6 months postdischarge appeared to be the critical period for function and realization about sexuality. A more realistic recognition of decline in their sexual activity, function, and interest corresponded with more requests for sexual health interventions during this interval.
