Sexual Health in Cancer (IPODE) (IPOD)

Discover funding options available to you.

The purpose of this 7-week course is to assist health professionals in cancer care to integrate human sexuality in their thinking and practice. Sexual concerns are one of the most common problems encountered in cancer care settings; yet they are the least likely to be discussed unless asked. The framework of this course encourages course participants to:

  1. Address their own, and society’s, attitudes and biases towards sexuality and sexual health;

  2. Increase knowledge regarding functional and dysfunctional aspects of human sexuality; and

  3. Develop knowledge and skill with regard to assessment and educational interventions for common sexual health issues in cancer care. Attention to issues of diversity will be integrated throughout.


While the course “Interprofessional Psychosocial Oncology: Introduction to Theory and Practice” is not a required pre-requisite it is recommended, particularly for students who have limited background in cancer care.
