The session will begin with an overview of the physiological and neurohormonal basis of sexual response and an overview of the chemotherapeutic interventions available for the treatment of sexual disorders. Participants will discuss sexual side effects of commonly used licit and illicit drugs, including those purported to have pro-sexual effects. The final discussion will focus on understanding comprehensive, integrated approaches to the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders and the need to be better informed about substances and their impact on sexual functioning.

Objectives:

  • Better understand the neurohormonal and physiological mechanisms that modulate sexual response, as the basis for understanding the various chemotherapeutic interventions in the treatment of sexual dysfunctions and disorders.
  • Enhance awareness of theba complex issues surrounding sexual response and how to develop a comprehensive approach to treating sexual disorders.
