The short guide is an abbreviated version of “Clinical practice guideline on roles and interventions in physiotherapy to promote sexuality in adults with a neuromuscular disease”. This short version highlights important elements of the long version of the guide and is intended as a practical clinical reference document. The long version of the guide is intended for physiotherapists working with adults with a neuromuscular disease (NMD) who wish to address sexuality with this clientele. The CPG aims to: 1) Propose approaches to address the subject of sexuality with people who have a neuromuscular disease; 2) Provide physiotherapists with tools by identifying and documenting a set of relevant interventions that can be applied in their practice; 3) Highlight issues related to sexuality that can be addressed by all physiotherapists and those requiring expertise in pelvic floor physiotherapy; 4) Support the process of referral to other health professionals involved in providing care. The CPG was developed using the “The Rare Knowledge Mining Methodological Framework”, which includes a literature review, consultation and validation process. It is available in French and in English.
