Investigation involves a broader international lens into the psychological and medical aspects of sexuality in rehabilitation and community settings. Potential topics of interests related to sexuality include: palliative care, long term care, spouse-partner-significant other in the care giver role, decision making capacity, access to education, access to resources, access to treatment, as well as topics generated based upon deficit of coverage in the literature. Professional scholarly mentorship is provided to promote learning as well as product/accomplishment. As Editor-in-Chief of Sexuality and Disability, I provide a unique perspective and insight into the operational aspects of publishing and the publication process.
