Sexual Health Workshop

Sexual Health Workshop

Date: Friday 24 August  2018
Time: 13:30-15:30 (2 hours)
Chairs: Max Rutherford and Victoria Cullen
Numbers: This workshop is limited to 30 delegates
Cost: Complimentary to full conference delegates or Friday day delegates

This Sexual Health Workshop will explore the realities of addressing sexual recovery with prostate cancer patients.  It is for nursing and allied health care practitioners having conversations with their prostate cancer patients and their partners about sexual matters.

We will lean into questions such as:

  • What are the challenges of exploring sexuality with prostate cancer patients (especially given the time constraints of a typical consult)?
  • How can we best deal with the discomforts associated with discussing sexual intimacy with individuals and couples?
  • What does ‘sexual recovery’ mean in this context?
  • How do we measure success?  How do we know that we have done a good job?

We will create a safe space for peer learning in order to explore common challenges around sexual communication.  Rather than arriving with ‘ánswers’, we will ask questions and facilitate conversations designed to uncover our shared expertise.  It is hoped that by sensitively exploring these issues as a group we will all become better acquainted with how to facilitate discussions with our patients.
