Sexuality in the Palliative Care Phase of life: the patient and their partner

Dr Margaret Redelman OAM

The Palliative Care Phase of the life cycle is often a sad difficult time when the ending of life for one of the partners is nearing. It is a complex time of 'saying goodbye' while at the same time 'clinging to life' and the 'relationship and love' one has with the other. These intertwining needs are often difficult to manage and our patients and their partners may benefit from professional assistance.
'Sexuality' may be especially important at this time as it is 'sexuality' rather than 'sex' that defines the meaningful relationships people have with themselves and significant others. And when sexuality is lost or changed, important avenues of expression and communication may also be lost.
