Project Details

Ovarian cancer is the most common form of gynaecological cancer. Women are often diagnosed late, with poor prognosis and a high risk of recurrence. Survivors require ongoing support and professional help in managing complex personal issues, long-term treatment side effects and late effects, as well as comorbidities. The aim of this project is to gather and analyse qualitative and quantitative data from ovarian cancer patients, their families, and their providers to identify their needs, with the eventual goal of establishing clinical tools, including patient-reported outcome measures and useful tools that can improve the experience of these patients and their families.
