Principal investigator Lois M. Ramondetta, MD
Description Little is known about the role a patient's spirituality plays in their quality of life. This study consists of a series of questionnaires that ask questions about religion, spirituality, and decisions about treatment. All patients with newly diagnosed ovarian, primary peritoneal or fallopian tube cancer who come to the Department of Gynecologic Oncology at M. D. Anderson and affiliated clinics for care will be offered study participation. Patients will be asked to complete a series of questionnaires at specific times: at the time of diagnosis (before their second cycle of therapy begins), at the end of primary chemotherapy, and one year later. The questionnaires should take a total of about 65 minutes to complete, and patients can choose not to answer any question they do not want to answer. Patients who agree to participate but do not have time to fill out the questionnaires during their visits may return the questionnaire by mail in a pre-stamped envelope. All participants will be asked to provide the following information: their age, religious preference, race, marital status, date of diagnosis, stage of disease, and their current treatment. This information will be on a data sheet and should take about 5 minutes to complete. Any collected information will be confidential. Each participant will be given a specific identification number so that confidentiality can be maintained. This study is partially funded by a research grant from the Blanton Davis Ovarian Cancer Research Program, in Department of Gynecologic Oncology at M. D. Anderson. This is an investigational study. About 115 participants will be enrolled in this multicenter study. About 60 participants will be enrolled at MD Anderson. Up to 31 will be enrolled at the Harris Health System.
