Rekindle: testing an online resource to promote sexual wellbeing for both patients and their partners

Dr Haryana Dhillon, University of Sydney

This study was designed to test the feasibility and the benefit of Rekindle, a new online resource that addresses sexual concerns for both cancer survivors and their partners. Topics such as sexual communication, medical treatments for sexual dysfunction and strategies to improve intimacy are taught in a format tailored to individual users.

All participants were asked to complete a series of questions regarding sexual well-being on three separate occasions: upon enrolment, after 10 weeks and after 6 months. Questions were delivered over the internet and take about 10 to 15 minutes to answer. Participants had access to Rekindle for 10 weeks. They were asked to participate in a recorded telephone interview to discuss their experience using the resource.

This study is no longer recruiting participants.
