Out with cancer - Webinar

Do LGBTQI+ people with cancer have unique needs and experiences?   

1pm. Tuesday 15 September via Zoom.

LGBTIQ+ people with cancer have been described as an invisible diversity in cancer care.  As a result, health care providers are often ill-equipped to provide culturally-competent advice or assistance.

The ARC funded ‘Out with Cancer’ study is addressing this knowledge gap: exploring LGBTQI+ cancer survivorship and care, from the perspective of cancer survivors, their partners and healthcare professionals.

In this webinar, join Professor Jane Ussher from the ‘Out with Cancer’ Study, and a panel of LGBTQI+ people with lived experiences, to discuss preliminary study findings, including photo-voice, interview and survey results.

Jane M Ussher is Professor of Women’s Health Psychology, in the Translational Health Research Institute, at Western Sydney University. Her research focuses on reproductive and sexual health, and the gendered experience of cancer and cancer care. As a trained clinical psychologist, she has developed psycho-educational interventions to address sexual changes after cancer, fertility concerns, and the needs of cancer carers. She is author of over 250 papers and chapters, 12 books, and is editor of the Routledge Women and Psychology book series.  She was chief investigator on a PCFA funded project, examining gay men’s experiences of prostate cancer, and is co-editor with Janette Perz & Simon Rosser of the book Gay and Bisexual Men Living with Prostate Cancer: From Diagnosis to Recovery (2018) New York: Harrington Park Press.
