Knowledge Translation Products

Providing our clients with the best possible care is a priority at Holland Bloorview. Using timely research evidence, combined with clinical expertise, is important in creating resources to help with the promotion of health and well-being of children with disabilities and long term conditions.

Both promoting healthy lifestyles and discussing weight-related topics are priority areas of investigation by the ProFILE Lab, and so we are developing a suite of evidence-based products to help address gaps in this area.

Disability and Sexuality: More Conversations More Often!

We brought together young adults with disabilities, parents of children with disabilities, and healthcare providers to explore how best to have conversations about sexuality in healthcare. This infographic captures their needs and ideas for creating effective resources so that healthcare providers can have meaningful conversations about sexuality with youth with disabilities.

We would like to acknowledge all of the participants for their important insights. This project was funded by Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital, in partnership with the Accessibility Directorate of Ontario.
