It helps to determine whether the "slipping" is the chain slipping on the same cog (which indicates the wear type of issue), or whether it is slipping because it is jumping onto another cog aka "autoshifting". The latter is either a tension adjustment or potentially a bent derailleur. Good stuff on sheldonbrown.com on this topic.
