Annette Hasenburg - Germany

Psycho-Oncology Workshop: 

Fertility preservation and sexuality in patients with gynaecological cancer


Museum of Cycladic Art

Saturday, November 2, 2019

Chair: Annette Hasenburg, Germany

Due to improved survival rates and delayed motherhood, fertility and quality of life of young cancer patients are becoming increasingly important subjects to address.

The majority of patients with a cancer diagnosis during a fertile age wish to give birth to children, and concerns about fertility and biological parenthood are substantial for many survivors.

Sexual activity and function are also important factors influencing quality of life, which can be impaired by cancer treatment.

In this workshop, healthcare providers will receive information about how to counsel their patients on fertility issues and the treatment of sexual dysfunction, and will learn how psychosocial care may help patients cope with these lives after cancer treatment.

There will be an opportunity for clinicians to talk about their own issues while having to make complex medical decisions.

Case vignettes and an interactive discussion with the audience will guarantee a lively session in a very special location.
