Event Details

It is well-known that a cancer diagnosis and its sometimes long-lasting treatment can impair the sexual life of patients and survivors. This contributes to a deterioration of their quality of life and can also lead to an alteration of their therapeutic adhesion and therefore of their prognosis.

To mark Sexual Health Awareness Month and recognising there is still more work to do to put survivorship and quality of life issues into the spotlight of current discussions around the implementation of Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan(link is external), the objectives of this webinar are to:

  • raise awareness of the the impact of cancer on sexuality and intimacy;
  • present the ECL Patient Support Working Group’s leaflets (patient leaflet & healthcare professionals leaflet) to MEPs, cancer patients/survivors, healthcare professionals (and their organisations and representatives);
  • recommend actions to improve the quality of life of patients and survivors.

Invited speakers (from the European Parliament, civil society and the scientific community) will reflect on how to improve communication between patients and HCPs when it comes to sexuality and intimacy issues.


(Wednesday) 13:00 - 15:00 CEST
