Sex and intimacy are, for many health care professionals, difficult and potentially embarrassing topics to address with patients. Often it is easy to ignore them altogether - particularly if the patient doesn’t raise the subject.

The Ex-PLISSIT Model is presented as a useful and practical tool for clinical practice. Learner Outcome:
