Nurses can encourage female patients to participate in a major study of ovarian cancer by Ovarian Cancer Action (OVA).
The study, called OvQuest, is open to women in the UK, USA and Canada who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer and have received chemotherapy treatment for at least six months. It will compare the experiences of UK patients with those of patients in other countries to help healthcare professionals understand the needs of women living with ovarian cancer. The study also aims to raise awareness about the challenges facing women who are treated for ovarian cancer.
The survey is open until November. For more information, visit www.ovarian.org.uk/ovquest
