This new handbook takes a clinical approach to the topic of sexuality and cancer. Examining the literature and research, the text covers human sexuality in the context of cancer; provides a primer in human sexual functioning; offers tools for nurses on sexual health assessment and communicating with patients about sex; examines how specific cancers impact sexuality; discusses how cancer affects the family and the individual; demonstrates how specific treatment modalities affect sexual functioning; and provides tools for healthcare providers.Issues and interventions are discussed in detail, and are accompanied by case studies and resources. Nurses will find this book to be an invaluable resource on this essential yet seldom-discussed aspect of oncology care.
