Join Dr Syed Qamar Abbas for a free lunchtime lecture exploring sexuality in palliative care.
Sexuality is an important issue for many patients with serious illnesses and their partners, yet this is a subject that health care professionals often do not address in the palliative care context. Sexuality is intrinsic to a person’s sense of self throughout their lifespan, and it can be a vital form of expression that helps to relieve suffering, offer meaning, and maintain interpersonal connection in the face of serious illness. Dr Qamar Abbas will address issues around sexuality and ways to address those issues in this talk.
Dr Syed Qamar Abbas is the Medical Director and Consultant in Palliative Medicine at St Clare Hospice and Princess Alexandra Hospital. He also holds the titles of Senior Clinical Tutor at University of Cambridge and Associate Lecturer at Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford. He speaks from his experience and his involvement in palliative care for more than 21 years.
