A clinically useful update on the prostate cancer management

70% of GPs believe prostate cancer testing guidelines are unclear.

1/3 of GPs don’t refer to any guidelines when testing for prostate cancer.

88% of GPs are not confident in managing sexual rehabilitation post treatment.

With a recent study highlighting the uncertainty from GPs in diagnosis, treatment and care for prostate cancer patients, this program is sure to be informative and enlightening.

This program is dedicated to Prostate Cancer and Men’s Health primarily for the GP but is relevant for all men’s health care professionals.

If you register for the GP Workshop you have the option to attend a half day erectile dysfunction and sexual rehabilitation workshop – from beginners to advanced practice (Wednesday 19 August)

Erectile dysfunction and sexual rehabilitation workshop

In the afternoon as part of the Prostate Cancer World Congress program, we have dedicated two full sessions to explore the complex and challenging field of sexual dysfunction and sexual rehabilitation. The first session will provide all the basic information needed to commence a sexual rehabilitation program – from ED aids and devices, to penile prosthesis, how to manage the learning curve of establishing a sexual rehabilitation program, what non-medical devices are available and how to talk to patients about these, to engaging couples in the program and managing the psychological aspects of care.

The advanced ED session will focus on extending your knowledge about sexual dysfunction and sexual rehabilitation. This session will explore the complexities of sexual dysfunction, couple factors and intimacy and issues of identity, how to talk to men and their partners about trialling new sexual devices, how to work within the multidisciplinary team to optimize sexual outcomes, and the role of GP in supporting the sexual rehabilitation program. This session will also provide an opportunity for discussion about managing complex sexual dysfunction cases.

The Prostate Cancer World Congress has a 3 day multidisciplinary stream with workshops relevant to GPs e.g. Mindfulness, Erectile Dysfunction, Exercise physiology, Research workshops and Networking.  The 3 day registration cost will include the GP evening session. We welcome your attendance for the full Congress.
