The purpose of this descriptive study is to collect the experiences of cervical cancer survivors related to the information they received from their health care providers about how their diagnosis and treatment may impact their sexuality and sexual health. The perspectives of the cervical cancer survivors will be used to modify public domain educational materials used in oncology practices and cancer support organizations to reflect a more patient centered approach to sexual health information. Study outcomes will contribute to existing knowledge through submission to appropriate journals and conferences to improve cancer patient-provider sexual health communication.
