The research study focuses on understanding the treatment decision making experiences for patients newly diagnosed with cancer, living in California. The researcher is inviting individuals between the ages of 25 to 80, without cognitive impairment, newly diagnosed with cancer, without a previous diagnosis of cancer, and living in California at the time of diagnosis, to be in the study.
This study is being conducted by a researcher named Bonnie Quinonez, who is a doctoral student at Walden University.
The objective of this study is to contribute to the growing body of knowledge surrounding the patient decision-making process, and to strive to acknowledge and meet the evolving needs of patients diagnosed with cancer and their support team.
Participants who agree to be in this study will be invited to:
- Participate in one in-person interview, scheduled for a maximum of 60 minutes.
- Collect daily journal notes, approximately 3-10 minutes a day, three to five times each week, for a maximum of 30 days after the in-person interview.
- Participate in one follow-up phone call lasting approximately 3-5 minutes, 45-60 days after the in-person interview.
