Title Women's Integrative Sexual Health (WISH) Program Research Database

Objective The purpose of the research is to establish a database of information that may be used for future research studies for women who have sought treatment for sexual dysfunction. The WISH (Women's Integrative Sexual Health) staff is partnering with the Program in Integrative Sexual Medicine (PRISM) clinic at the University of Chicago for this database. The PRISM clinic is led by Dr Stacy Lindau, a national expert and international leader in female sexual dysfunction. By partnering with the PRISM clinic, the information collected jointly can be used to evaluate sexual functioning after cancer treatments, measure the effectiveness of current treatments, develop and implement new treatments for women after a cancer diagnosis.

Treatment Research staff will use the information in your medical record to be included in the study database. This information will be used to answer questions regarding sexual health. The database may also be used to determine whether or not you are eligible for future research studies.

Description The WISH clinic visit involves completion of a detailed intake assessment form to identify the patient s past medical history both in general and if appropriate, related to their cancer or surgical diagnosis and an additional assessment form to review sexual life and sexual concerns.
