Abstract:
Over 200,000 women are currently living with ovarian cancer and a nursing education intervention on survivorship concerns may be beneficial for this population. The purpose of this pilot study was to test the feasibility of the implementation of the Ovarian Cancer Quality of Life Intervention (OCEI) and gain feedback from pilot subjects regarding intervention design. The OCEI is based on the COPE model, which teaches a problem-solving process to develop an individualized plan of action to cope with patient-identified concerns. These concerns were focused around quality of life issues, specifically those in the physical, psychological, social, and spiritual domains. The pilot intervention incorporated the use of three scheduled 60-minute education sessions with a research nurse, use of written materials on ovarian cancer, and two data collection time points. Outcome measures were obtained using the Ovarian Cancer QOL Tool and a Patient Follow-Up Inventory to evaluate the intervention. The impact of the intervention was followed through comparisons of descriptive QOL data at baseline and evaluation. Mean age of subjects (n=14) was 60, and ethnicity included 60% Caucasian, 20% Hispanic, and 20% Asian. Subjects included 80% Stage III and 20% Stage IV disease of which 40% were undergoing treatment for initial diagnosis and 60% were undergoing treatment for recurrent disease. Subjects identified their major concerns as maintaining positive outlook/psychological coping (40%), concern for female relatives (30%), fear of recurrence (10%), anxiety (10%) and side effects (10%). Results indicate that immediate effects in several priority concerns were identified in the physical, psychological, and social QOL domains. Based on this preliminary data analysis, a follow-up procedure by phone and clinic visit was conducted with the first ten study subjects to determine the long-term application and efficacy of the OCEI. The follow-up data suggests that the OCEI may have a long lasting positive effect on the QOL of ovarian cancer patients.
