|Epidemiology||Behavioral: Focus Group Behavioral: Questionnaire|
If you agree to take part in this study, you will complete a survey about your health practices and knowledge about cervical cancer and HPV. You will also be asked to provide some personal history on yourself such as your age, gender, birthplace, ethnicity, relationship status and educational level. Female participants will be asked to indicate if they have received an HPV test (also called a "Pap" test) within the last 3 years. The survey will take about 5-10 minutes to complete and will be filled out on the same day as the focus group.
You will also take part in a discussion group called a "focus group." A trained focus group leader will guide you and 8-10 others through a series of questions. He/she will lead a discussion to hear comments, opinions, and observations on a brochure and poster about cervical cancer and HPV. Groups will be made up of participants of the same gender (that is, all male or all female) and ethnic group (Filipino, Korean, or Vietnamese). Each discussion group will last about 2 hours and may be audiotaped so that the discussion may be transcribed and analyzed. You will only be called by your first name and you are not required to use your real name during the focus group discussion. You will not be identified by the audiotape recordings.
Length of Study:
When the focus group discussion is over, you will be off-study.
This is an investigational study. Up to 60 participants will be enrolled on this study. All will be enrolled at M. D. Anderson.
