If you are over the age of 18 and a romantic partner and the caregiver of someone who has been diagnosed with lung cancer in the past two years, please consider contributing to this important study on the quality of life of caregivers of lung cancer patients and survivors.
This study consists of completing a brief online survey at 2 different time points over the course of six months (initial time point and 6 months later). Some find the surveys helpful for reflecting on their caregiving experience, and you would be contributing to our understanding of the important but understudied topic of the challenges faced by caregivers.
After completing both the first and second survey, you will have the option to submit an email address to be entered into a lottery for receiving one of three $50 Amazon electronic gift cards. The survey questions will ask you about your feelings about caregiving, your quality of life, your physical health, and the physical health of the lung cancer survivor for whom you are a caregiver. The survey will take approximately 30 minutes at each of the two time points.
This research is being conducted by Trisha Raque-Bogdan, Ph.D. of the University of Denver and Amanda Ginter, Ph.D., of Towson University.
