Let's talk...

Discussing erectile dysfunction (ED) can be perceived as embarrassing – both for the healthcare professional and the patient (and partner) sitting across from you. Opening the conversation around ED is important to ensure that no man is left feeling isolated in their journey with ED.

This webinar will discuss the patient journey and how health care providers can better adapt their practice to ensure the patient leaves an appointment feeling empowered with the right knowledge.
