Patient Experiences of Hypothyroidism Care and Treatment
We ask your help in answering and/or sharing this important survey!This study is developed by Thyroid Federation International (TFI) and four leading international endocrinologists (Petros Perror – UK, Lazio Hegedus – Denmark, Enrico Papini – Italy and Endre Nagy – Hungary) to understand the needs and experiences of those living with hypothyroidism and, in particular, patients’ satisfaction with treatment of hypothyroidism and the identification of any unmet patient needs.
We ask you to share the link to the survey (e-mpathy-study) to your members and social media (#hypothyroid, #Hashimoto, #thyroidcancer, #hyperthyroid, #Graves). Because it is necessary to get the experience of all hypothyroid patients, we ask you to share it on all social media you know, even with groups that might not support evidence based information.
The target number of responses is more than 10,000 responses to be able to come to reliable conclusions for different treatments in different countries. Until now we received less than 200 responses, which is very disappointing.
The plan is to keep this survey open for completion until the end of January 2021. It will take about 35 minutes to answer all the questions.
Patients’ satisfaction and unmet needs have been a point of discussion for us for many years.
We look forward to receiving your feedback.Go to E-MPATHY Study
