I. To determine the prevalence and severity of patient-reported symptoms in patients with platinum-resistant ovarian, fallopian tube, and peritoneal cancers at study entry and at three and six months post-enrollment.
I. To explore the unmet needs of these women at study entry and at three and six months post-enrollment (Exploratory) II. To explore the overall quality-of-life (QOL) of these women at study entry and at three and six months post enrollment. (Exploratory) III. To explore the relationship between patient-reported symptoms and overall QOL, current cancer therapy (yes/no), and treatment responses (if on cancer therapy). (Exploratory)
OUTLINE: This is a multicenter study.
Patients complete the Needs at the End-of-Life Screening Tool (NEST), the Functional Assessment of Cancer Therapy - Ovarian (FACT-O), the FACIT-Fatigue Subscale (FACIT-F), the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) FACT Ovarian Symptom Index-18 (NFOSI-18), the FACT/GOG-AD subscale for ovarian cancer-related abdominal discomfort, and the FACT/GOG-Neurotoxicity (FACT/GOG-NTX) Scale quality-of-life questionnaires at baseline and at 3 and 6 months during office or clinic visits or via telephone or mail. Patients' demographic and therapy information, such as current age, ethnicity, marital status, employment status, prior chemotherapy regimens/cancer treatment, disease status (if available), performance status, patient care information, and current cancer therapy are also collected.
After completion of study participation, patients are followed up every 3 months for 2 years, every 6 months for 3 years, and then annually thereafter.

- Prevalence and severity of patient-reported symptoms as measured by the NFOSI-18, the FACIT-F subscale, and the FACT/GOG-AD and NTX subscales [ Time Frame: Up to 6 months ]Assessed at baseline, and at 3 and 6 months. The prevalence of a patient-reported symptom will be determined by the percentage of living patients reporting the presence of a symptom at the assessment time point.
