Research Opportunity for Previvors and their Romantic Partners

About the Study

Researchers at the University of Kentucky are hoping to learn more about the relational experiences of individuals with hereditary breast cancer mutations who have navigated a double mastectomy while in a committed romantic relationship. They are particularly interested in the couples’ experience related to sexual intimacy before and after prophylactic surgical procedures.

What the Study Involves

Interested participants will complete an online consent form and demographics survey. Participants must make sure to include their phone number at the end of the survey if they wish to participate. They also have the option to reach out directly to the researcher via email or phone if they have questions before completing the online survey. Following the survey the researcher will reach out to eligible participants to schedule a Zoom interview. Interviews may take between 60-90 minutes to complete.
