A Prospective Study Examining the Barriers to Care for Harris County Cervical Cancer Patients or Patients With Precancerous Lesions (CIS)


Little is known about what prevents women with cervical cancer or CIS from getting early and
possibly curative treatment. This study consists of a series of questionnaires that ask
questions about religion; coping; access to health care; physical, emotional, spiritual
well-being; understanding of health questions; control; fear; anxiety; and other health
beliefs to determine why some women delay coming in for check-ups and why some women do not
complete their treatments. It is thought that health beliefs influence behavior practices
and that by identifying these issues, things can be done to improve the health condition and
results for these patients.

You are being asked to take part in this study because you are a patient with newly
diagnosed cervical cancer stage IA1 through IVB or CIS and are seen in the
gynecologic-oncology or colposcopy clinic at LBJ General Hospital.
