STUDY BASICS

Have you been diagnosed with cancer? If so, you may be eligible for a research study from the University of Pittsburgh looking at how adults with cancer self-advocate or stand up for themselves. As a participant of this study, you will complete a 45-minute one-on-one interview in-person, over the phone, or on Zoom. Compensation is provided.


STUDY PURPOSE

This study is collecting information to understand how individuals with cancer stand up for themselves. A person’s ability to stand up for their own values and beliefs is called “self-advocacy.” As part of this study, you will be asked to complete a one-on-one interview. Your feedback will be used to design programs to help patients with cancer advocate for themselves.


COULD THIS STUDY BE RIGHT FOR YOU?
  • Are 18 years of age or older
  • Identify as male or female
  • Are undergoing treatment for cancer

WHAT PARTICIPANTS CAN EXPECT

The study consists of 1 one-on-one interview. We estimate that the interview will take 45 minutes to complete.
