This webinar provides an overview of changes in language used to document staff observations of sexually responsive behaviour. Best practice expectations require descriptive accounts of behavioural episodes as well as a record of observations to determine frequency, duration, risk and patterns of sexual expression. Yet there is no consensus regarding the definition of sexually responsive behaviour, or what distinguishes normal expression from pathology.
The webinar discusses descriptive language that can capture behaviour in a respectful, professional fashion, at the same time providing accurate and detailed information useful for health care teams to interpret behaviour, determine risk levels and develop a care plan. An outline of important behavioural descriptors is discussed. Participants have an opportunity to provide important feedback and input into editing responsive behaviour descriptions.
