Abstract:
Research Study: An estimated 21,650 women in the US in 2008 will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer; the five year survival for all stages is 44.9%. The majority of survivors continue to experience physical and emotional concerns which generate information needs. An understanding of information needs is a requisite to planning interventions. Consistent with ONS research priorities, this study examined the information needs among ovarian cancer survivors, and used this baseline to determine perception of information needs met immediately post and 30 days after an educational conference. This study integrates components of Derdiarian's cancer information needs model and Stress and Coping Theory. Information is a resource that enhances coping, aids adjustment, and is identified as a need by all cancer survivors. When information needs are identified, problem-focused and emotion-focused strategies can be targeted toward concerns. Using a descriptive survey design, the revised TINQ for ovarian cancer was used to collect information needs data from 78 ovarian cancer survivors pre education conference and perception of needs met post-conference and 30 days later. Participants reported their perception of information needs on a range of 1 (not important) to 5 (extremely important): disease control (M = 4.46, SD = .593), investigative tests (M = 4.05, SD = .894) treatment (M = 4.41, SD = .663) , physical (M = 3.81, SD = .953), psychosocial (M = 3.57, SD = 1.01), indicating that information needs were high across all subscales, however, survival concerns (disease/treatment/tests) was higher than physical and psychosocial concerns. Participants reported perception of information needs met post-conference (N = 51) and 30 days after (N = 21) as follows: 69.2%, 61% (8 disease control items), 66.46%, 72% (10 treatment items), 71%, 74% (5 tests items), 46%, 60% (5 physical items), and 56%, 60% (9 psychosocial items). Information needs regarding survival concerns were more frequently met than physical and psychosocial. Some information needs were better met at 30 days suggesting that recommendations made at the conference were incorporated. Findings of this study provide information to better plan educational and supportive education.
