The subject of sexuality and intimacy is still difficult to discuss in the consulting room with both the general practitioner and the hospital. However, it is important to discuss this topic (at an early stage) with the patient and his partner. Satisfaction with sexuality declines significantly after the diagnosis of ‘prostate cancer’ for both partners.
On Tuesday April 19 of 2016, Ipsen held the scientific Symposium on Sexuality and Intimacy in uro-oncology patients.
Some reactions from participants.
‘Good to discuss the topic with colleagues.’
‘Role play was a lot of fun. Especially to sit on the other side.’
‘Thanks for organizing this study day. Nice varied program.’
‘Good tools have been given to provide better information.’
