A Study on the Role of Spirituality and Faith during Cancer Treatment
The purpose of the current study is to characterize the perspectives of cancer patients who have undergone a cancer-directed surgery on the role of spirituality and/or religion during their cancer journey in order to better define the desired access to related resources during cancer care. Results from this study will inform future research aimed at addressing patient-centered spirituality/faith needs of cancer patients.
If you’ve had or will have surgery to treat a cancer diagnosis, you can help researchers at Ohio State examine how patient spirituality and/or religion influences the cancer journey by taking an online survey.
Participants should be:
• Over 18 years old.
• Diagnosed with cancer (all types).
• At least four months past the initial cancer diagnosis.
• Underwent or will receive a surgical procedure related to their cancer
• Able read and write in the English language.
A Study about Tools to Assess Mental Health for Youth with Intellectual Disabilities and Their Caregivers
This study will help researchers to learn more about mental health for youth with intellectual disabilities. The purpose of our study is to develop a diagnostic interview to assess mental health issues in youths with Intellectual Disabilities. The instrument would address a significant need and allow for more accurate estimation of mental disorders in the Intellectual Disabilities population.
We are recruiting youths with Intellectual Disabilities aged 14-21, and their caregivers as well. Each participant would take part in one individual session of approximately 60-90 minutes (with breaks) at the Ohio State University Nisonger Center. Youths will be asked to respond to a set of interview questions about mental health, including providing feedback on a set of illustrations related to the interview questions about emotions, feelings, and behaviors. Parents or caregivers will be asked to provide feedback on the interview questions asked of youth.
You may be eligible to participate in the study if you are:
--14 to 21 years old AND have been diagnosed with an Intellectual Disability
Youths will be asked to respond to a set of interview questions about mental health, including providing feedback on a set of illustrations related to the interview questions about emotions, feelings, and behaviors. Parents or caregivers will be asked to provide feedback on the interview questions asked of youth.
Decision Making Among Couples Concerning "Permanent/Irreversible" Birth Control
This study aims to understand people’s experiences with contraceptive sterilization (such as tubal ligations or vasectomies).
The purpose of this study is to better understand how adults decide to use sterilization as
their main form of birth control. By examining sterilization decisions, this study will
provide a better understanding of how individuals describe and explain their decision
In this study we are interested in learning how people discuss these decisions with their partner, as
well as everyday interactions with their partner, other forms of birth control, and attitudes
about gender more generally.
-Have used tubal ligation or vasectomy as primary contraception, WITHIN the last five (5) years
Participants will be asked to answer a series of questions regarding their experience with
sterilization. Interviews will be digitally recorded by audiotape and will remain
confidential. The duration of the interview will last approximately one hour to one hour
and thirty minutes.
