OASIS stands for Oncology and Sexuality, Intimacy, and Survivorship program. The program helps support people with cancer to adjust to sexual changes. OASIS offers clinical services and education for people who have cancer and for healthcare providers.
Calgary, there’s a clinic with a healthcare team to see people with cancer who have sexual concerns.
The OASIS information is to help teach people who have had cancer to learn how treatment may affect the body, mind, and relationships in relation to sexuality. The information will help people learn about:
- changes they might have
- ways to manage challenges
- ways to stay sexually active
