This session addresses the impact of having a long-term condition and disability on sexuality and health risk behaviours during adolescence.

 

Learning Objectives

By the end of this session you will be able to:

  • Describe the implications of having a long-term condition or disability for sexual function and health
  • Describe the effects of having a long-term condition or disability on health risk behaviours and vice-versa

 

Young people with long-term conditions and disabilities are young people first and foremost. The wider implications of their conditions, for areas such as sexual and reproductive health, should be a routine part of healthcare. Furthermore, adolescence is a time when many behaviours associated with a health risk commence, including sexual behaviours, which may both influence and be influenced by a long-term condition and disability.
