Development and Pilot Test of an Elective Bilateral Salpingo-Oophorectomy (BSO) Decision Support Guide
Specific Aim 1) Conduct formative research to assess how sociodemographically diverse women
who will be undergoing hysterectomy for non-cancerous conditions view elective BSO and to
assess their information needs and desires regarding shared decision making in this context.
Specific Aim 2) Create a BSO Decision Support Guide using information obtained from the
literature, from our formative research, and the experience of providers who have counseled
women about this choice.
Specific Aim 3) Pilot test the BSO Decision Support Guide among women scheduled to undergo
hysterectomy for benign conditions to assess its usefulness and usability for patients and
their providers and to prepare for a randomized study of its impact on decision quality and
use of BSO.
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label
Satisfaction with Intervention
After study participants participate in a baseline interview, during which they will be provided access to the BSO Decision Support guide, they will receive 2 follow up telephone interviews (one as they are making their final BSO decision and a second after they have undergone and recovered from their hysterectomy (with or without BSO)
