Want to help develop a “virtual librarian” for women with ovarian cancer and their families? 

If you or a family member has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, we would like to invite you to participate in the HELPeR (Health E-Librarian with Personalized Recommender engine) research study at the University of Pittsburgh. Participation in this study will help us to better understand the information needs and preferences of women with ovarian cancer and their family members. We are especially interested in what information is most valuable to you when you are searching for online information, support, and resources related to ovarian cancer. 

• You will be asked to participate in an interview that will take no more than 1 hour. The interview will be scheduled at a convenient time for you and could be done in person, over the telephone or by video meeting.

• Your decision about whether to participate in this study will not have any impact on your usual care. 

You may be eligible for this study if:

• You are 18 years or older

• You or a family member have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer 

• You have access to a computer and the Internet

 

There is no cost to you for participating.

Compensation ($50) will be provided.

The Association of Stigma and Self-Disclosure with Social Support, Mental Health, and Posttraumatic Growth Among Cancer Patients

This study examines experiences of living with cancer. You are being asked to complete a series of questionnaires that assess your experiences of stigma, self-disclosure, social support seeking and utilization, and mental health. In order to better understand how people experience cancer, we are interested in hearing the voices of cancer survivors. You will qualify for the study if you are 18 years old or older, have been diagnosed with any type of cancer six to eighteen months prior to participation in the study, and are currently post-treatment. The entire study will take about 45 minutes to complete. Your participation is completely voluntary and if you are uncomfortable at any time, you are welcome to stop answering the questions. Upon completing the survey, you will have the opportunity to voluntarily provide your email address in order to enter a drawing to win a $100 Amazon gift card.

Thank you for considering your participation. The study is confidential.
Please feel free to send this study to others who may qualify.
We appreciate your time.
