Background: The profession of occupational therapy is in need of a framework to guide practitioner understanding of the complex occupational nature of sexuality and intimacy, including assessment, intervention design, and measurement of outcomes. The purpose of this study was to define the occupational nature of sexuality and intimacy and develop a theoretical and occupation-based screen, in-depth self-assessment, and performance measure. Method: The Occupational Performance Inventory of Sexuality and Intimacy (OPISI) was developed following DeVellis's (2017) guidelines for scale development which involved mapping the construct, generating an item pool, determining the format for measurement, and review of the initial item pool by a panel of experts. Results: The Occupational Therapy Sexual Assessment Framework (OTSAF) was developed to define the occupational nature of sexuality and intimacy, depict how the theoretical constructs intertwine with the domain of occupational therapy, and guide scale development. The OPISI includes a self- screen,in-depth self-assessment, and an individualized measure to detect self-perceived change in ability, satisfaction, understanding, and confidence in skills and ability to improve occupational performance associated with sexuality and intimacy over time. Conclusion: The OTSAF defines the occupational nature of sexuality and intimacy and informs the scope of practice for occupational therapy. The OPISI includes theoretical and occupation-based tools designed to adequately screen, assess, and measure performance related to the complex occupational nature of sexuality and intimacy. Formal validation is needed prior to releasing the OPISI for clinical use.
