Symposium Cancer, Sexuality and Sexual Well-Being : 11 September
Cancer and its treatment have a major impact on sexuality, both physical and psychological, and therefore on quality of life. Unfortunately, there are no procedural standards for dealing with these issues in Quebec. This symposium acted as an opportunity to formulate concrete recommendations and standard operating practices (SOPs) for public health decision-makers to better support people with cancer in their sexuality and sexual well-being.
