The robotic surgical platform has had increasing uptake by head and neck surgeons in Australia and New Zealand since it was first described for head and neck surgery just over a decade ago. This study aims to evaluate the adoption of robotic head and neck surgery in Australia and New Zealand, including the factors influencing its acceptance and how it has affected our practice.
This quick survey is based on a validated theoretical model for measuring the acceptance of new technology called the "Unified Theory of Acceptance and Use of Technology" (UTAUT). The survey will run for 2 months and all responses will remain anonymous.
Your participation in this study will not only add to our understanding of trends in the management of head and neck disease, but may play a role in shaping how we train and accredit surgeons in the era of robotic surgical technology.
Thank you for taking time to participate in this study.
