Research Trials

Rekindle Research Study

Rekindle is a free, private, personalised online resource that addresses sexual concerns for all adults affected by cancer and promotes sexual wellbeing. Rekindle will be personally tailored to meet your specific needs.

Your participation in this study can benefit you by offering information regarding sexual wellbeing after cancer treatment and how to improve coping. In addition, the information in Rekindle can encourage you to think about your sexual wellbeing, intimate relationships and communication style.

Rekindle can be used on any device, including laptops, tablets and smart phones. It is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

We are testing Rekindle (the online resource) in a research study. It is important that we understand if Rekindle really helps people with their sexual concerns before we make this resource widely available. If you want access to Rekindle, the only way you can do so at the moment is by taking part in the study.
