Women with metastatic breast cancer experience unique sexual health challenges that are not well addressed in standard patient communication with medical providers. In this talk, I will describe the findings and clinical implications of a multi-method study with women diagnosed and treated for metastatic breast cancer. Findings from this study can guide the types of information offered by medical providers to patients and their partners, help direct the development of clinical interventions, and help support the sexual and relational adjustment of women diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
This study provides patient-based data for those treating women near the end of life and underscores the importance of supporting women’s sexuality near the end of life as an essential component of the evolving discussion of sexuality and cancer.
