Hello,

 

My name is Basem Gayed and I am a third year dental student at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine. I am working on customer discovery efforts related to a proposed new product for mouth ulcers as a result of cancer treatment. This project is being led by Dr. Rajesh Lalla and is part of the Accelerate UConn program which seeks to advance the development of new products.

 

We are interested in collecting information on the possible need for a new medication to reduce pain due to oral mucositis (mouth sores due to cancer treatment). If you had mouth sores due to chemotherapy or radiation therapy, we would greatly appreciate it if you can take an anonymous survey at the link below. Your participation is voluntary. If you choose to participate, please complete the survey. While complete surveys will provide better data, you may skip questions that you do not feel comfortable answering. Your response to these questions should take between 2-5 minutes to complete. Completion of this survey signifies your consent to participate in the study. The information obtained may help in the development of a new treatment option for this problem. Your survey responses will be recorded in a de-identified manner i.e. no one will be able to connect your responses to your identity from the survey database. Therefore, your confidentiality will be protected.

 

Thank you for your time and consideration. If you have any questions, please send me an email at gayed@uchc.edu.

 

Sincerely,

Basem Gayed

Researchers from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are conducting an online survey on the exercise programming preferences of adult liver cancer survivors. The survey takes around 25-35 minutes. This study will provide us with information that can help us to tailor physical activity and counseling programs to fit the specific needs of patients and survivors of liver cancer, so that we can develop programs that will best support this community.

Participants will have the option of being entered into a lottery to win one of several $50 Amazon gift cards.

Purpose: The American Cancer Society is testing a modified version of the Cancer Survivors Network (CSN) and is inviting you to try it. This research is being done in collaboration with Carnegie Mellon University and is sponsored by the National Institutes of Health.

 

Procedure: Your participation is voluntary.  If you agree, you will use a modified version of CSN to participate in the community.  You will have access to all CSN content, and any posts or comments you make will be added to the CSN community, just as they are now. What is new is that you will see recommendations for content and other members that might interest you. These recommendations are based on what you have read on CSN. As you read more discussion threads, the recommended content and members will be updated. You will occasionally receive a survey to get your feedback on the new interface. We will also ask about the relevance and value of the recommended content.   These surveys will take less than three minutes to complete, and you will receive them at most once per week. We will also invite a small number of members to give more extensive feedback through a phone interview.

 

To participate in this trial, click this link: Yes, I’ll use the new CSN interface.  You can always opt-out later by clicking ‘the use the traditional CSN design’ button on your CSN user profile.

Our research team at Tulane University is conducting an online survey of individuals with cancer histories. The survey takes about 10 minutes and asks about people’s beliefs about their health and healthcare, feelings and behaviors, and demographics. All responses are anonymous and you will not be re-contacted after completing the survey. We hope that the study will build knowledge that can help individuals with cancer to be more satisfied with their care.

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?

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.
