Strategies to maintain sexual function post-treatment for prostate cancer


A research group at the University of Otago in New Zealand is continuing to investigate how men treated for prostate cancer deal with sexual dysfunction. We have helped them with this before and will continue to do so.

We know that sexual dysfunction is common among men after receiving prostate cancer treatment. Many couples stop sexual activity when the patients have sexual dysfunction, but some remain sexually active.

In their most recent survey, Wibowo and his colleagues are interested in assessing the different strategies prostate cancer patients use to maintain sexual activity after treatment. To access the study survey, simply click here.

This study is open to all men who have received treatment for prostate cancer.

The survey will take you about 15 minutes to complete and only needs to be completed once. Data from this study can potentially be used by health care providers to advice prostate cancer patients on how to remain sexually active.

For participants who live in New Zealand, at the end of the survey, you can enter a raffle for a chance to win a gift card worth NZ$100 (but this probably won’t help most people living in other countries).

For those who may have chosen to participate in such surveys by the University of Otago research group in the past, you may be interested to know that Dr. Wibowo and his colleagues recently submitted two abstracts for presentation the upcoming International Psycho-Oncology Society meeting based on findings from both studies that were fielded through this site and others. We willl provide information about these data once they have been accepted for presentation.
