Participate in a Survey about Complementary Therapies

Oncowell logo

Oncowell, in collaboration with Cancer 101, invites you to participate in a survey that explores views on complementary treatment options that may help improve quality of life for a person with cancer.

The survey is about Complementary Therapies–therapies that can help with health and well-being during cancer treatment. The survey includes 12 questions and should take less than 10 minutes to complete. After completing the survey you will have the opportunity to compare your responses with those of your peers.

What Are Complementary Therapies?

Complementary therepies are designed to alleviate some of the side effects of traditional treatment regimens Because traditional treatments such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy can affect healthy tissues or organs, a person with cancer may feel fatigued and have side effects of pain, dermatitis, or an increase in infections.

Side effects can also affect eating because of nausea and vomiting, diarrhea or constipation, and mouth sores. To treat these side effects, a wide variety of traditional and complementary methods are available to aid in maintaining quality of life.

About The Survey

The survey will help us to understand the perception of complementary therapies and how they can be effectively used to alleviate the side effects of traditional cancer treatments. All survey responses will be aggregated and anonymous to securely maintain complete confidentiality. A report will be available to you at the completion of the survey study, if you wish to receive it.

Our Goal

Our goal is to understand knowledge, behavior and attitudes towards complementary therapy as a option to help alleviate side effects from chemotherapy and radiation therapy. We are also interested in better understanding how side effects of traditional cancer treatments can be effectively addressed through natural means. We will use the survey results for new patient education efforts to improve quality of life for people with cancer and their caregivers.
