Living With Cervical Cancer: Assessing Utilities Associated With Common Treatment Complications
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The objective of this study is to establish patient preferences in regards to common complications of cervical cancer treatments, and to compare these preferences to those of medical providers who care for cervical cancer patients. These preferences will be determined via a interview using the Standard Gamble, which is a well-recognized method for establishing utilities.

Ages Eligible for Study:
18 Years to 61 Years (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:
Patient Population: Patients ≥18 and <61 years old who were diagnosed with early cervical cancer (stages I and II) at least 3 years prior to the interview. We cannot limit our population to stage IB2 patients and meet our accrual goals due to the rarity of the disease. Patients with stages I and II cervical cancer are included because they have the potential to be exposed to the same treatment complications as patients with stage IB2 disease. Patients of all health statuses will be accepted.
Provider Population: Providers who care for patients with cervical cancer at the University of Wisconsin, including: gynecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, physician's assistants and nurses. Providers must be ≥18 and <61 years old in any health status.
A subject has to have been diagnosed with early cervical cancer (Stage I or II) within the last 3 years and/or take care of patients with cervical cancer and identify her or himself as one of the following: gynecologic oncologist, radiation oncologist, physician's assistant or nurse.
Subjects must be ≥18 and <61 years old.
Subjects who are unable to read and speak English proficiently will be excluded. Proficiency will be assessed by the investigator enrolling patients.
Subjects who do not have capacity to consent will not be included in this study.
