Therapies Used in Psychosexual Care
A randomised clinical trial (RCT) to improve sexual functioning in patients post prostate cancer surgery was conducted. Men were randomised to either a 10-session group behavioural therapy or a control group. Men who participated in the group therapy reported improved sexual functioning compared with controls . This highlights something that the pathway could focus on and has been shown to have a positive impact.
