Exploring Sexual Health Needs of Women with Gynecologic Cancers

Friday, August 20, 2021 - 1:45pm
Your announcement.: 

Are you interested in helping providers better understand your experiences regarding sexual health after a gynecologic cancer diagnosis?

We are seeking adults diagnosed with gynecologic cancer for a study on sexual health needs. 

Study tasks will take about 160 minutes and include completing a survey and participating in a focus group online over Zoom. Group interviews will focus on your experiences of sexual distress, sexual health, relational health, and sexual function as a gynecologic cancer (GC) survivor. Information gained from this study will provide the foundation to eventually create prevention and treatment methods to better promote sexual wellbeing in individuals with GC. This study is supported by an Institutional Research Grant from the American Cancer Society.

You will receive $40 for your participation after the focus group interview.

Study conducted by the Program in Human Sexuality at the University of Minnesota Medical School.

To participate you must be a) an adult diagnosed with ovarian, cervical, endometrial, vaginal or vulvar cancer, b) at least three months post treatment, c) English speaking, and d) able to provide informed consent. We are interested in hearing from individuals from a range of relationship statuses, not only those who are in committed relationships. 

If you are interested in participating, please contact the study coordinator, Kat Arenella, at (612) 624-4766. You can also call or email Kat at arene002@umn.edu if you have additional questions.

We look forward to hearing from you!
