The Cancer Survivorship and Sexual Health Symposium is a State of the Art initiative sponsored by the International Society for Sexual Medicine and the Sexual Medicine Society of North America. The Symposium took place from June 17th to 19th, 2011 at the Hyatt Regency Washington on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, USA.
The target audience for this educational program organized by the Sexual Medicine Society of North America (SMSNA) and the International Society for Sexual Medicine (ISSM) included primary care physicians, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, (oncology) nurses, urologists, gynecologists, mental health professionals, allied health and scientists interested in cancer survivorship.
The program was hosted by a multidisciplinary faculty with expertise in men’s and women’s sexual health and adolescent medicine. The goal of the program was to define sexual dysfunctions experienced by cancer survivors, and introduce sexual medicine into the care plans for cancer survivors.
