Clinical nurse specialists and the psychosexual needs of patients with gynaecological cancer.

Author information

Gynaecological Oncology, John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford, UK.


Due to improved survival rates many women have been left with chronic problems following treatment for a gynaecological cancer. These include psychosexual issues, premature menopause and infertility. Common sexual problems may result from low self-esteem, loss of femininity, vaginal stenosis and dryness. In the UK, clinical nurse specialists are recognized as key members of the multidisciplinary teams required to care for women diagnosed with a gynaecological cancer. Their role in providing information and support with special reference to psychosexual problems is examined.
