Sexuality and Cancer for the Frontline Nurse

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Though sexuality is a concern for all oncology patients, care providers don’t routinely ask about it. Often, we’re uncertain of how to deal with sexual problems when they’re raised by patients or their partners. If you’re ready to chip away at your uncertainty, don’t miss this session, which answers three important questions: What are the sexual issues for the most common and some rarer cancers?  What are the causes of these? What can be done for these patients and their partners? With the new assessment techniques and intervention strategies you’ll gain, you’ll be ready to confidently address some of the biggest questions of survivorship and treatment—the ones that shouldn’t be swept under the table.  

Objectives
1. Understand the important of assessing for sexual problems during and after treatment.
2. Describe the sexual side effects of treatment for a variety of cancer types.
