A self-help website for managing worries
iConquerFear is designed to help women affected by ovarian cancer to manage worries about cancer coming back or getting worse using proven strategies
Recruitment to the research study evaluating whether iConquerFear is a safe, useful and potentially effective resource for reducing fear of cancer recurrence in ovarian cancer survivors has now closed. We are busily collecting and analysing the study data. If the results are positive, we hope to re-open website registrations in the first half of 2023.
Please click on the ‘Express Your Interest’ button if you’d like us to let you know when the website is available again. If you’d like help with concerns about cancer coming back or getting worse in the meantime, please call the Ovarian Cancer Helpline on 1300 660 334 (Monday to Friday 9am - 5pm AEST/AEDT) or visit https://www.ovariancancer.net.au/store/products/13/fear-of-recurrence-booklet Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
