Research study for people with advanced cancer
I am an RN and Phd student at University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) School of Nursing. Along with my adviser Christine Miaskowski RN, PhD, a Professor in the School of Nursing, I am conducting a study to understand the symptom experience of patients with advanced stage cancer.
We want to hear about your experience with symptoms from advanced stage cancer or cancer that has spread (metastasized).
- Do you have cancer that has metastasized or is considered advanced stage?
- Are you experiencing any distressing symptoms associated with your cancer or the cancer treatments?
- Are you receiving Palliative Care or are enrolled in Hospice?
- One time participation online will take approximately 30-60 minutes.
- A $20 gift card to Target will be mailed to you for your participation.
Sharing your knowledge may improve our understanding of the most common symptoms that patients with advanced cancer experience. This study has been approved by the UCSF Committee of Human Research (IRB).
If you are interested or would like to learn more, please contact me. LINK DELETED PER FORUM POSTING POLICIES, BUT CONTACT CAN BE MADE VIA OUR PM OR HER EMAIL TO PARTICIPATE.
