“Very important not to forget the sexual part of life!” : A quantitative survey that describes the extent to which occupational therapists within habilitation in Sweden work with sexual health and what opinion they have about the topic. (English)
Abstract [sv]

Studier visar att sexuell hälsa upplevs som ett relevant arbetsområde inom arbetsterapi men i nuläget är det många arbetsterapeuter som utesluter ämnet i sitt dagliga arbete, även inom habilitering. Syfte: Syftet med studien var att beskriva i vilken utsträckning arbetsterapeuter inom ungdoms- och vuxenhabilitering i Sverige arbetar med sexuell hälsa samt deras uppfattning om ämnet. Metod: En kvantitativ enkätstudie där deltagarna rekryterades genom ett icke slumpmässigt bekvämlighetsurval. Undersökningen bestod av 71 arbetsterapeuter som arbetar inom ungdoms- och vuxenhabilitering i Sverige. Data analyserades i statistikprogrammet IBM SPSS Statistics. Resultat: 53 deltagare hade aldrig utfört någon intervention relaterat till sexuell hälsa. 35 hade tagit upp ämnet med en patient någon/några gånger per år. 38 uppgav att deras patienter aldrig hade tagit upp ämnet med dem. 37 instämde delvis att de är bekväma med att ta upp frågor gällande ämnet. 55 ansåg att de inte har tillräckligt med kunskap för att kunna arbeta med ämnet. 42 ansåg att sexuell hälsa är en del av deras arbetsområde. Slutsats: Arbetsterapeuter inom habilitering är i behov av mer kunskap och verktyg för att kunna arbeta med ämnet på ett professionellt och tryggt sätt. Arbetsterapeuter har kompetens att arbeta med ämnet vilket kan ge patienterna möjligheten till en god sexuell hälsa. Genom tydligare riktlinjer på arbetsplatsen, mer undervisning i grundutbildningen samt utbildning via verksamheten kan arbetet för den sexuella hälsan gynnas för patienterna.

Abstract [en]

Studies indicate that sexual health is seen as a relevant work area within occupational therapy but it’s currently several occupational therapists that excludes the topic in their daily work, also within habilitation. Purpose: The purpose with this study was to describe the extent to which occupational therapists within youth and adult habilitation in Sweden work with sexual health and what opinion they have about the topic. Method: A quantitative survey where the participants were recruited through a non-probability convenience sampling. The survey consisted of 71 occupational therapists who works within youth and adult habilitation in Sweden. Data was analyzed in the statistical program IBM SPSS Statistics. Results: 53 participants had never implemented any intervention related to sexual health. 35 had addressed the topic with a patient some/a few times per year. 38 stated that their patients never had addressed the topic with them. 37 partly concurred that they were comfortable with addressing questions regarding the topic. 55 considered that they did not have enough knowledge in order to work with the topic 42 considered sexual health as a part of their work area. Conclusion: Occupational therapists within habilitation need more knowledge and tools to be able to work with the topic professionally and safely. Occupational therapists have competence to work with the topic which can give patients the ability to have a good sexual health. By implementing guidelines, more training in basic education and education in the workplace, the work with sexual health can improve for the patients.
