Survivorship rates for women following pelvic cancer are increasing. Survivors are at high risk of developing sexual and pelvic floor dysfunctions following cancer treatments. While research demonstrates emerging evidence for conservative treatment of these dysfunctions, management need to be provided appropriately within the context of the survivorship trajectory. This workshop will present recent evidence to support the role of conservative management of sexual and pelvic floor dysfunctions in female pelvic cancer survivors. The focus will be on multidisciplinary care that provides a biopsychosocial approach and on how to integrate research evidence into clinical care in ways that address the specific needs of this population.
