PERSPECTIVES ON DISEASE AND SEXUALITY Center for Sexology Research, Aalborg University & Aalborg University Hospital Scope: Sexuality, intimacy, and relational competencies are notoriously affected in the course of a chronic or life threatening disease. The pathogenic mechanisms are complex and include organic, iatrogenic, cultural, and psychosocial factors. Moreover, the sexual aspects of disease are insufficiently investigated and the topic is too often overlooked or plainly disregarded in clinical practice. Deriving from the various research areas of the scientific staff at the new Center for Sexology Research (Aalborg University), this preconference will focus on different aspects of disease and sexuality. The presentations, thus, will be kaleidoscopic, and rather than offering a coherent theoretical or clinical framework, a broad spectrum of data, perspectives and inspiration points will be put forward and discussed.
