Michelle Low is an Honours student at the University of Sydney completing her research as part of the Sydney Sexuality Group under the supervision of Dr Margaret McGrath and Associate Professor Emma Power. They are conducting a study on the current practices, knowledge and attitudes of health professionals in addressing sexuality in stroke survivors. This is being conducted as research indicates that stroke survivors would appreciate support from health professionals with their post-stroke sexuality, and that many health professionals find this to be a challenging area of practice.


They are looking to recruit physicians, psychologists, social workers, rehabilitation counsellors, nurses, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and speech pathologists who:

  • have worked in non-acute stroke care for at least 6 months;
  • have had at least a percentage of his/ her caseload in stroke care;
  • are fluent in written English; and
  • have worked (in a paid or voluntary capacity) in South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, Singapore, Canada, United States of America or the United Kingdom
