Research opportunity: Eligible for PARP inhibitor maintenance therapy but not taking it?


The below information is to inform you of a research study about ovarian cancer maintenance therapy in Canada. This study is conducted by Broadstreet HEOR on behalf of GlaxoSmithKline (also called “GSK”). GSK is a company that discovers and makes vaccines, medicines, and other healthcare products. Ovarian Cancer Canada is committed to driving research forward, and therefore shares relevant research opportunities with those affected by ovarian cancer, where appropriate.

If you have been diagnosed with ovarian cancer, you may qualify to take part in a 60-min virtual interview about your experiences. Broadstreet HEOR (a Canadian health research company) wants to speak with adults with ovarian cancer who have received chemotherapy treatment in Canada and were eligible for PARP inhibitor maintenance therapy afterward but decided against taking it. Instead, you are being closely monitored by your doctor and not on any active cancer drugs or treatments.

Anyone who qualifies and participates will receive $80. All information and responses will remain confidential.

To check if you’re eligible, email Jessica Dunne at
