Physician attitudes and practices related to providing reproductive and sexual health care to women with mobility disabilities Creighton, Zahra; Kuras, Martha; Vincze, Elizabeth

Abstract

Studies show that women with physical disabilities have significant barriers to sexual and reproductive health care. There are several contributing factors to this disparity: health care provider attitudes towards disability and sexuality; health care provider lack of knowledge about sexuality and disability; limited education regarding sexual health and disabilities for health care providers; and inaccessible facilities and equipment. Currently, much of the research on the subject has been based in the United States. Limited research has been done to identify barriers and physician knowledge and attitudes towards sexuality and disability in British Columbia and Canada.
