A Bio-psychosocial Sexual Health Intervention for Prostate Cancer Survivors and Partners: a Feasibility Study
The burden of sexual dysfunction after prostate cancer surgery is responsible for the single
greatest impact on patient/partner health-related quality of life; substantially more so
than concern for cancer recurrence, or any other post-surgery side-effect. Consequently,
there is a great need for progressive and distributable sexual health rehabilitation
interventions designed to uphold intimacy and optimal sexual health. If the
biomedical-psychosocial intervention is ultimately found beneficial, it will result in: 1)
an empirically-based intervention that helps patients/partners maintain optimal
health-related quality of life after prostate cancer surgery, and 2) a highly structured
protocol and manualized intervention that is translatable to other treatment groups (e.g.
radiation therapy) and University/Community-based hospitals.
