ASCO Guidelines Address Cancer Patients’ Sexual Health

May 28, 2018

ASCO Guidelines Address Cancer Patients’ Sexual HealthNew guidelines from the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) encourage healthcare providers to discuss sexual health with their cancer patients.

The guidelines were adapted from 2016 guidelines set forth by Cancer Care Ontario (CCO), a Canadian organization that advises healthcare professionals and policy makers.

“The ASCO Expert Panel determined that the recommendations from the 2016 CCO guidelines are clear, thorough, and based on the most relevant scientific evidence,” wrote the authors of the ASCO guidelines, who added modifications to suit a “broader audience.”

The guidelines apply to men and women of all sexual orientations (and their partners) who are age 18 and over.
