Click here to book now

This national annual summit takes a practical approach to improving practice and outcomes for those living with and beyond cancer, moving from surviving to thriving. Through national updates and practical case studies the conference aims to support you to deliver on the above priorities outlined by NHS England and develop effective cancer survivorship support and services. There will be an extended focus on implementing the New National Quality Indicator for recovering cancer patients and learning from the early experience at the pilot sites. The conference will also explore how we meet the unmet needs of people living with and beyond cancer, accelerating the roll-out of stratified follow up pathways and the commissioning of holistic packages of support, and ensuring every person with cancer will have access to relevant elements of the Recovery Package.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to improve services for cancer survivors
  • Learn from outstanding practice in the development of cancer survivorship programmes
  • Reflect on the perspectives on cancer survivors
  • Get up to date with national developments on cancer survivorship including the new national quality of life metric
  • Reflect on the development of your own services including recovery packages, risk stratified follow up and support programmes
  • Understand how to work with staff to move the focus from surviving to thriving
  • Identify key strategies for improving managing the consequences of cancer treatment
  • Develop your role in meeting the needs of cancer survivors
  • Self assess and expand your skills in developing risk stratified follow up and remote surveillance
  • Gain CPD accreditation points contributing to professional development and revalidation evidence

Abstract

Background

Sexual dysfunction in people with cancer is a significant problem. The present clinical practice guideline makes recommendations to improve sexual function in people with cancer.

Methods

This guideline was undertaken by the Interventions to Address Sexual Problems in People with Cancer Expert Panel, a group organized by the Program in Evidence-Based Care (pebc). Consistent with the pebc standardized approach, a systematic search was conducted for existing guidelines, and the literature in medline and embase for the years 2003–2015 was systematically searched for both systematic reviews and primary literature. Evidence found for men and for women was evaluated separately, and no restrictions were placed on cancer type or study design. Content and methodology experts performed an internal review of the resulting draft recommendations, which was followed by an external review by targeted experts and intended users.

Results

The search identified 4 existing guidelines, 13 systematic reviews, and 103 studies with relevance to the topic. The present guideline provides one overarching recommendation concerning the discussion of sexual health and dysfunction, which is aimed at all people with cancer. Eleven additional recommendations made separately for men and women deal with issues such as sexual response, body image, intimacy and relationships, overall sexual functioning and satisfaction, and vasomotor and genital symptoms.

Conclusions

To our knowledge this clinical practice guideline is the first to comprehensively evaluate interventions for the improvement of sexual problems in people with cancer. The guideline will be a valuable resource to support practitioners and clinics in addressing sexuality in cancer survivors.

Jo’s Cancer Trust is looking for Helpline Volunteers

Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust are currently looking for volunteers to help run their growing helpline, and we are especially interested in hearing from health care professionals who have experience and knowledge of cervical cancer or cervical abnormalities.

The Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust helpline offers reliable information, friendly support and useful signposting to women, and their loved ones affected by cervical cancer and cervical abnormalities. So far this year our helpline volunteers have helped over 800 people feel better informed, less isolated, and  more supported in their situations.

Our helpline advisors volunteer remotely from their own homes, and commit to a 3 hour shift twice a month.  The charity provides all of the helpline skills training, information, and support to succeed in this role. You will be joining a fantastic and supportive network of valued volunteers who really make a difference to women and their loved ones.
