COVID-19 Breast Cancer Care Survey

About the Study

The purpose of this research study is to learn about how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected cancer care and quality of life in breast cancer survivors. Participants will complete an online survey and some women will be invited to participate in an online interview to learn more about their cancer treatment experiences during the pandemic.

What the Study Entails

People diagnosed with breast cancer in January 2020 or later, are invited to participate. Participation includes:

  • Complete an online survey lasting about 30 to 40 minutes. 
  • After finishing the survey, you will receive a $30 Amazon gift card. 

Thirty women will also be asked to take part in an online interview so that the study team can learn more about their experiences and access to cancer care during the COVID-19 pandemic. It is okay if you chose not to participate in the interview.

  • The interview will be 60 to 90 minutes long.
  • If you choose to do the online interview, you will be sent a $60 Amazon gift card after the interview is completed.

If you would like to participate in this study, please contact the research team at the study e-mail address [covidhri@central.uh.edu] or visit this link [COVID19 Breast Cancer Care Survey]. After completing the study information survey, a member of our research team will be in contact with you to complete a brief phone screening and provide instruction to access the survey.
