Are you an adult with a current or past cancer diagnosis? Are you interested in learning more about your personality?

If so, you may be qualified to participate in an online survey about personality and cancer care. The study is a one-time anonymous survey that takes about 30 minutes to complete. As a participant, you will receive personalized feedback about your results on a personality test. Additional survey questions will ask about your demographics, health history, mood, and feelings about your cancer care. We hope that the study will build knowledge that can help individuals with cancer to be more satisfied with their care.

Cancer survivors and their care partners often turn toward their social networks for help and support, but the COVID-19 pandemic can make this difficult. Access to clinical care and support services may be limited. Social distancing may change the nature and timing of regular social interactions, making it harder to get support from their usual network of family and friends.

Our study team wants to better understand survivors’ and caregivers’ social support needs, networks, and interactions during the pandemic, and how these connect with stress and wellbeing. This will help us develop strategies for improving or maintaining social support and wellbeing during crises, and beyond.

We are enrolling cancer survivors who received at least one cancer diagnosis in the past 5 years and who have a care partner or close support person who is also willing to participate. Both participants must be 18 years old or better. All study activities are completed online or by phone, so no travel or in-person contact is required. Participants will receive up to $150 in gift cards for completing the study.

Breast cancer survivors who have undergone breast reconstruction, we would like to hear about your breast reconstruction experience! Please respond here if you are at least 18 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer and had reconstruction following mastectomy.

 

Post-mastectomy breast reconstruction experiences vary from person to person.  The objective of this study is to examine and better understand the experience surrounding post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. By doing so, we hope to shed light on ways in which surgeons can better understand the experiences of diverse patient populations and identify patients who may need more extensive support in order to obtain optimal results following post-mastectomy breast reconstruction. 
 
 

Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University will use your survey responses for RESEARCH purposes to learn about breast cancer survivors’ views on their breast reconstruction. By responding to this survey, you are giving permission to have your responses used in the research study. If you do not wish to be included in the research, do not respond to this survey. Participating is completely voluntary, and we will NOT collect your name or any other identifying information. Your responses will be kept confidential with researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University

Hello! My name is Anthony Cavalier and I am graduate student studying clinical psychology. As a cancer survivor myself, I know from personal experience how emotionally challenging cancer and its treatment can be. In part to help make some positive meaning out of my own experience, I’m studying individuals’ attitudes toward, and need for, mental health services during this difficult time. With this in mind, would you please take a few minutes to answer this confidential survey? Please note that your name or identifying information will not appear anywhere in my dissertation or related papers. Thank you, and I will be happy to send the results of my research to anyone who is interested. I wish you all well on this journey.
