Ovarian Cancer Clinical Trial

Study of a Rapid Triadic Communication Intention Elicitation Intervention to Improve Supportive Oncology Care Delivery

Summary

The purpose of this study is to help test an idea designed to foster more supportive talk between providers (doctors or nurse practitioners), patients, and caregivers during an outpatient oncology appointment. A caregiver is the person the patient identifies is primarily involved in their healthcare. This study is collecting your reaction to this idea in order to understand needed changes before we introduce the idea to a larger group of patients.
