The Emotional Impact of Advanced Cancer

Speaker: Associate Professor Jane Turner

University of Queensland & Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital

The news that cancer has recurred and is advanced, is devastating and can bring with it disbelief and uncertainty, fear and anxiety, distress and depression. Depression and anxiety are common among patients receiving palliative care and contribute to a greatly diminished quality of life and impact on physical symptoms, social concerns and existential issues. Treatments for depression and anxiety can improve quality of life and ability to cope with disease burden, and this presentation describes treatments which can be delivered in a community setting.


Sexuality: Impact of Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment

Speaker: Ms Janine Porter-Steele

Manager Wesley Hospital Kim Walters Choices Program

The diagnosis of cancer of any kind can have a devastating effect on psychological and emotional well-being as well as physical functioning including sexual function. Estimates of sexual dysfunction after cancer treatment vary widely, with most research to date relating to breast and gynaecologic cancers and prostate cancer. Sexuality is fundamental to the ways we experience physical and emotional closeness and develop intimate relationships. This Webinar will provide an understanding about the ways that cancer and its treatment affects the sexuality of people with cancer. The presentation will address practical ways that health professionals can assist people with cancer to adapt to physical and emotional changes that impact on sexuality and intimacy. The presenter will draw from her experience in supporting women with breast and gynaecological cancers.
