Sexual well-being in patients with PCa and their partners is multifaceted, comprising physical, emotional, social and cultural aspects.
Implications for Nursing Practice:
A combination of pharmachological and non-pharmachological interventions together with enhanced communication can be successful in providing culturally competent, person-centered care by oncology nurses and the wider multi-disciplinary team.
