Our researchDeveloping and testing support resources to maximise sexual wellbeing for men following a diagnosis of prostate cancer and their partners: A Global Approach

The majority of men with prostate cancer receive treatments which affect sexual function and well-being. These sexual wellbeing issues are not being adequately addressed. The resources being developed are:

  • an online training module to enable health professionals (HPs) to address the psycho-sexual needs of men and their partners.
  • an ‘Engagement, Assessment Support & Signposting Instrument (EASSI) for HPs to use with men in clinical practice.
  • a web-based programme for men and their partners to manage the psychosexual problems they may experience

The project runs from January 2017 to November 2019
