|Official Title:||Development and Pilot Test of an Elective Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy (BSO) Decision Support Guide|
- Satisfaction with Intervention [ Time Frame: 6 months ]After study participants participate in a baseline interview, during which they will be provided access to the BSO Decision Support guide, they will receive 2 follow up telephone interviews (one as they are making their final BSO decision and a second after they have undergone and recovered from their hysterectomy (with or without BSO)
- BSO Decisional conflict, regret, anxiety [ Time Frame: 6 months ]In the 2nd follow up telephone interview we will ask how helpful was the BSO Decision Support Guide, and if they have any conflicts or regrets with the decisions made.

Behavioral: Computerized decision aid with 1 type of value clarification
Women will be instructed to view a computerized BSO decision support guide.
Other Name: Computerized decision aid with 2 types
Specific Aim 1) Conduct formative research to assess how sociodemographically diverse women who will be undergoing hysterectomy for non-cancerous conditions view elective BSO and to assess their information needs and desires regarding shared decision making in this context.
Specific Aim 2) Create a BSO Decision Support Guide using information obtained from the literature, from our formative research, and the experience of providers who have counseled women about this choice.
Specific Aim 3) Pilot test the BSO Decision Support Guide among women scheduled to undergo hysterectomy for benign conditions to assess its usefulness and usability for patients and their providers and to prepare for a randomized study of its impact on decision quality and use of BSO.
