Introduction to the Study


Principle Investigator: Dr. Baafi Okyere, Doctoral Student, William Carey University School of Nursing



You are invited to participate in a research study that will be conducted in order to investigate the health cost literacy of cancer patients.  Health cost literacy refers to a cancer patient’s ability to obtain, process, communicate, and use health-related cost information to make informed treatment decisions. The title of the study is “Identifying Cancer Patients at Risk for Low Health Cost Literacy.” The results of this study will be used to inform healthcare providers about which types of resources cancer patients need in order to improve their health cost literacy.
The results of this study will also be used to help the researcher meet the requirements for earning a doctorate of philosophy degree.

Please take the time to read the following information about the study. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach me at  bokyere358538@student.wmcarey.edu  or at (404) 932-0545. Participation in the study is strictly voluntary and you may withdraw at any time without harm or retaliation. There are no identifiable risks to the participants and no monetary rewards for participation.


If you wish to participate in this study, please respond "Yes" to  bokyere358538@student.wmcarey.edu  Once I receive your email, you will receive an email link from "Surveymonkey.com" with instructions to complete the survey. Participation in the study takes a total of between 5 to 10 minutes to complete.  Your name will not be affiliated with the surveys and the collected information kept under lock and key in a file cabinet at the researcher’s home.
