Living with Sexuality and Cancer (2012)

Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust in partnership with
The Christie Hospital Manchester and ISSC

'Living with Sexuality and Cancer' was organized on Friday the 20th of January 2012. This National Conference, the first of an annual series, was designed for any healthcare or allied professional working with patients who have or have had a diagnosis of cancer.
Surveys of patients with an oncology diagnosis, suggest that they have anxieties and issues relating to sexuality and many would like their healthcare professionals to raise the subject.
The Conference addressed sexuality issues that arise from diagnosis, treatments, survivorship and palliative care needs.
