What was your experience with the financial costs of cancer treatment?

 

By better understanding your experiences we may be able to help others navigate the financial terrain of cancer. Researchers at University of Louisville Kent School of Social Work are conducting a study about the impact of cancer treatment on the financial well-being and quality of life of cancer survivors. Participation involves completing a 20-30 minute web-based questionnaire. To be eligible for the study, you must be 18 years or older, have been diagnosed with breast cancer or blood (Leukemia, Lymphoma, or Myeloma) cancer within the past five years.

 

This study is supported through a Doctoral Training Grant from the American Cancer Society and has been approved through the University of Louisville IRB: 17.0187.

 

We need your help! How did you manage the costs of your cancer treatment?

If interested in participating follow this link to the survey.

We invite you to participate in our study of Breast Cancer treatment decisions. This study is funded by the National Cancer Institute, and is being conducted at Stanford University School of Medicine. Women diagnosed with breast cancer face decisions about how to treat the affected breast as well as whether or not to remove the unaffected one. In our research study, we will be looking at the factors that may influence these treatment decisions. We would like to better understand what women think and feel as they are deciding on their cancer treatment. Your participation in this study will help us better understand the factors that influence treatment decisions for breast cancer. The valuable information you provide may help us develop possible new interventions to better assist women newly diagnosed with breast cancer with their treatment decisions during this stressful and crucial period of treatment. You may receive up to $550 for your participation.

If you are over the age of 18 and a romantic partner and the caregiver of someone who has been diagnosed with lung cancer in the past two years, please consider contributing to this important study on the quality of life of caregivers of lung cancer patients and survivors. 

 

This study consists of completing a brief online survey at 2 different time points over the course of six months (initial time point and 6 months later).  Some find the surveys helpful for reflecting on their caregiving experience, and you would be contributing to our understanding of the important but understudied topic of the challenges faced by caregivers.

 

After completing both the first and second survey, you will have the option to submit an email address to be entered into a lottery for receiving one of three $50 Amazon electronic gift cards.   The survey questions will ask you about your feelings about caregiving, your quality of life, your physical health, and the physical health of the lung cancer survivor for whom you are a caregiver.  The survey will take approximately 30 minutes at each of the two time points.

 

This research is being conducted by Trisha Raque-Bogdan, Ph.D. of the University of Denver and Amanda Ginter, Ph.D., of Towson University.

 

If you would like to participate in this research, please either go to https://udenver.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_etkPpCNDT9HwkKN
