Many people with a history of breast and gynecologic cancer experience reproductive or sexual difficulties, and there are few resources to help couples cope. We are developing a program to help fill this gap, but we need your help. The program will teach couples to cope and communicate with each other about their sexual and reproductive health concerns.
We are interested in hearing from couples with a variety of sexual orientations and gender identities so that we can create an inclusive program.
Both partners must agree to participate to be eligible.
1) You and your partner will be interviewed separately (each by yourself) to share your experiences and opinions about the program we are developing.
A trained interviewer will ask you questions about how you talk with your partner about fertility, parenthood decisions, and sexual health after cancer and any challenges you may have had. Next, they will ask you to share your opinions about a program to support couples community about these topics. For example-- your opinions on what would be most helpful, the types of topics that should be covered, and the best way to deliver the program. The whole interview is will take about 60 minutes. What you tell us in this interview will not be shared with your partner.
2) We may also invite you to complete a second interview, together with your partner, to share your opinions about the program after we have revised the materials.
3) Your feedback is extremely valuable, and will directly affect the changes we make to this program.
4) Participants will receive a $20 gift card for each interview.
