Sexual Health and Counselling in Prostate Cancer (IPODE) - Prostate cancer impacts widely on patients' sexual health and wellbeing. Research shows that persons affected by prostate cancer want support, education, and counselling in this area.

The Sexual Health and Counselling in Prostate Cancer course is designed to equip health care professionals with the skills and knowledge necessary to deliver sexual health support to patients and families impacted by prostate cancer.
