Abstract:

The research study has been in progress for six months. We have obtained all Internal Review Board approvals and the Certificate of Confidentiality. Currently, we are developing and piloting the telephone survey protocol and finalizing operational definitions. We have begun preparations for the first phase of data collection. Communication has been established with Kaiser Permanente to select enrollee women according to the studys eligibility criteria. Quantech, the professional civilian survey firm, has been consulted to make preparations for the telephone interviews. Preparations include adaptation of the questionnaire to their computerized interview system, a random selection procedure for the control women, and a manual for training interviewers. Telephone survey is scheduled for August, 1997.
