Cost Utility Analysis in Recurrent Ovarian Cancer
The goal of this research study is to learn about the quality of life and sexual functioning of women with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer as they receive other treatments for the disease.
Researchers will study the costs for chemotherapy treatments, other medical expenses, and treatment-related expenses that are not medical. Researchers will also review any symptoms these patients may experience related to the cancer or treatment.
In addition, researchers want to learn if and how these patients' caregivers feel the status of these patients' health may have affected the caregivers' productivity at work and at home.
