An Internet-based Cancer Symptom Management Study

Welcome to the
WRITE Symptoms (

Research Study Homepage

WRITE Symptoms (Written Representational Intervention To Ease Symptoms) is a web-based symptom management program for women with recurrent ovarian cancer.  The program is designed to help women find new ways to get better control over their symptoms. WRITE Symptoms is offered in two different formats: (1) nurse-delivered (through interactions with a study nurse) and (2) self-directed (through an interactive computer module).

 The goal of the WRITE Symptoms Study is to find out whether these educational programs can improve symptoms and quality of life for women with recurrent ovarian cancer. 


This study is an approved Gynecologic Oncology Group trial and is supported by the National Cancer Institute and the National Institute of Nursing Research (RO1NR010735).
