Full TitleTrue NTH Sexual Recovery Intervention for Prostate Cancer Survivors and their Partners
Prostate cancer treatments such as surgery and radiation therapy can affect a man’s sexual health. In this study, researchers want to assess a new web-based program designed to help prostate cancer survivors and their partners improve sexual intimacy and quality of life.
Participants in this study include men scheduled to have radiation therapy or prostate removal surgery (but not hormonal therapy) as treatment for localized prostate cancer, as well as their partners. They will be assigned to one of two groups: 1) the usual care group, or 2) the interventional group. Each group is web-based. Participants will receive information about the impact of prostate cancer treatment on sexual health, as well as strategies to retain or recover sexual health despite treatment-related sexual side effects.
Patients and their partners will be asked to complete a survey at the start of the study, three months after treatment, and six months after treatment.
Participants in this study include men with localized prostate cancer who will be receiving radiation therapy or surgery as the primary treatment for their prostate cancer, as well as their sexual partners. Participants should understand English and must have Internet access.
