About the Webinar
Sex can be a challenging topic to address when working with cancer survivors. Cancer and its treatment can change a person’s sexual response cycle, desire and the way they relate to themselves as a sexual being. This presentation will address fear of the conversations and biases that come along and ways to overcome these barriers, describe the impact of cancer treatments on sexual functioning, physically and emotionally and provide evidence based interventions and resources to help cancer survivors reclaim sexual satisfaction.
At the end of the presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Gain specific knowledge of cancer treatments impact on sexuality
- Identify interventions and resources to promote intimacy and enhance sexual satisfaction
- Demonstrate confidence in working with individuals of all genders and sexual orientations
- Acknowledge the discourse about the unique needs of LGBTQIA survivors
