Cancer Rehabilitation

MSH Team Members are healthcare professionals who specialise in helping patients with Cancer Rehabilitation, including addressing the impact of cancer and its treatments on sexual wellness. They provide valuable support, guidance, and treatment options to individuals who have undergone cancer treatment and may experience challenges related to their sexual well-being.

Understanding the Impact on Sexual Wellness:

MSH Team Members understand that cancer and its treatments can significantly impact a person's sexual well-being. Surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormonal treatments may lead to physical changes, such as loss of libido, vaginal dryness, erectile dysfunction, or changes in sexual function. The emotional and psychological effects of cancer, such as anxiety, body image concerns, or relationship strain, can also affect sexual wellness.

Assessment and Evaluation:

MSH Team Members conduct a comprehensive assessment to evaluate the specific sexual concerns and challenges faced by individuals after cancer treatment. They create a safe and non-judgmental environment for patients to discuss their concerns openly. The assessment considers physical changes, emotional well-being, and relationship dynamics to develop an individualised treatment plan.

Individualised Treatment Plans:

Based on the assessment results, MSH Team Members develop tailored treatment plans to address sexual wellness concerns. They provide education and guidance on managing sexual side effects, such as using lubricants or vaginal moisturisers, exploring alternative sexual activities, or utilising assistive devices. They may recommend appropriate medications or refer patients to specialists, such as sex therapists or urologists, for further support.

Psychological Support and Counseling:

Cancer Rehabilitation for sexual wellness includes addressing intimacy and relationships' emotional and psychological aspects. MSH Team Members offer counselling and support to help individuals navigate the changes in their sexual function, body image, and self-esteem. They provide coping strategies, communication skills, and emotional support to enhance overall sexual well-being and intimacy.

Education and Resources:

MSH Team Members provide educational resources and materials that address sexual wellness after cancer treatment. They offer information on managing sexual side effects, enhancing intimacy, and fostering open communication with partners. They may recommend books, online resources, or support groups where individuals can find additional guidance and connect with others facing similar challenges.

Collaboration with the Healthcare Team:

MSH Team Members collaborate with other healthcare professionals involved in the patient's cancer care to ensure comprehensive support. They work closely with oncologists, gynaecologists, urologists, or mental health professionals to address both the cancer treatment-related needs and the sexual wellness concerns of individuals in a coordinated manner.
