In 2018, the World Ovarian Cancer
Coalition launched the global version of this study to help highlight the
challenges facing women with ovarian cancer and identify opportunities to
make progress. This Canadian-specific study will dig deeper into the
Canadian health care context and learn how people with ovarian cancer in
this country experience access to care and treatment.
The online survey asks over 100 questions
and will take approximately 60 minutes to complete. Questions focus on
topics relating to an ovarian cancer diagnosis such as:
· Awareness about ovarian cancer and its
symptoms prior to diagnosis
Experience with the health care system
leading up to diagnosis
Financial and geographic access to needed
Access to and attitudes towards new
treatments and clinical trials
Ability to cope with emotional, practical
and financial challenges and insights regarding which support resources
were most helpful

Please share this with other women you
know who have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
