Social support needs and networks of cancer survivors and caregivers during COVID-19 pandemic

Wednesday, December 2, 2020 - 2:30pm
Your announcement.: 

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.
