Please Participate in StepUp-SpeakOut.Org's Survey

Announcing a research survey by Dr. Mei Fu of New York University College of Nursing,

Please participate!

We would value your response to the questions on our on-line survey: Breast Cancer and Lymphedema Symptom Experience Survey Regarding Breast Cancer and Lymphedema Symptom Experience

If you are a female 21 years of age or older and have been diagnosed with and treated surgically for breast cancer, you are invited to share your experience of breast cancer in this online study.
The purpose of this study is to examine the reliability and validity of the Breast Cancer and Lymphedema Symptom Experience Index, an instrument to evaluate breast cancer survivors' symptom experience. Your valuable input will help researchers better understand women's experiences of breast cancer, including symptoms, distress, and quality of life. Ultimately, the information obtained from the study will help to gain insights into the needs of women who have survived breast cancer so that more personalized care can be provided.

The New York University Institutional Review Board "IRB" (an ethical review board that monitors research involving human subjects) has approved this research study.

The study is brief and will take about 10-15 minutes of your time. You can skip any questions that you might feel uncomfortable in answering. Your participation is voluntary and anonymous. We will keep your responses confidential.

Your input is valuable. Please take the time to complete this survey. We appreciate your response!
